Breaking: Employers can begin submitting 2017 data electronically—But only 300A data!
By Ana Ellington, Legal Editor

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced that establishments required to electronically submit their injury and illness records to OSHA may begin to do so now.

All covered establishments must submit the 300A annual summary data from the completed calendar year 2017 by July 1, 2018. OSHA is not accepting the 300 log or the 301 incident report at this time, which means that establishments with more than 250 employees are only required to electronically report 300A data, at this time.

The Agency is drafting a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to reconsider, revise, or remove provisions of the “Improved Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses” final rule, including the collection of data from the 300 and 301 forms. OSHA will seek comments on those provisions when the NPRM is published.

Establishments with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records, and establishments with 20–249 employees that are classified in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses are required to electronically submit their 300A. The criteria are at the establishment level, not the company as a whole.

Covered establishments under the jurisdiction of these State Plan states do not currently have to electronically submit their 300A summary data: California, Maryland, Minnesota, South Carolina, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
