Reminder: Submit 2018 300As to OSHA!
By Emily Scace, Senior Editor, Safety

The deadline for affected employers to electronically submit calendar year 2018 injury and illness data to OSHA is tomorrow. By March 2, 2019, all employers covered by OSHA’s electronic recordkeeping requirements are required to submit data from their calendar year 2018 300A form (Annual Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses).

The submission requirement applies to all establishments with 250 or more employees that are required to keep injury and illness records, as well as establishments with 20-249 employees in designated high-hazard industries.

OSHA’s high-hazard industry list includes over 60 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes, some at the 2-digit major industry sector level, and others at the more detailed 4-digit industry group level. All establishments with 20-249 workers in agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting; utilities; construction; manufacturing; and wholesale trade are required to submit data by the March 2 deadline. Other affected industries include various subsets of retail trade, transportation, warehousing and storage, waste management, health care, accommodations, food service, and other services. The full list is available at

Employers that are required to submit data electronically must do so using OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA), available at There are three options for submission. Employers can:

  • Enter data manually;
  • Upload a CSV file to process single or multiple establishments at the same time, or
  • Transmit data electronically via an application programming interface (API), for users of automated recordkeeping systems.

In January, OSHA officially rescinded the requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees to submit their OSHA 300 logs and OSHA 301 incident reports, retaining only the Form 300A submission requirement.
