The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Form 300A for 2017 was due July 1, 2018.
“Employers who had 250 or more employees at an establishment at any point during 2017, and who are required to keep OSHA injury and illness logs” must submit the form by July 1st. Employers who had 20-249 employees in 2017 may have to complete the form if they are in what OSHA considers to be a “high hazard industry”.
JD Supra notes that OSHA is not accepting electronic submissions of forms 300 or 301 at this time, and that instructions to submit the forms can be found on the agency’s website or by clicking here.
OSHA has announced that employers can continue to submit reports after July 1st, however the submissions will be marked “late”.
Under the current recordkeeping rule, the initial deadline for electronic submission of information from OSHA Forms 300 and 301 by covered establishments with 250 or more employees was July 1, 2018. However, OSHA has announced its intent to issue a proposal to amend its recordkeeping regulation to remove the requirement to electronically submit to OSHA information from the OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and OSHA Form 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report) for establishments with 250 or more employees which are required to routinely keep injury and illness records. OSHA will not enforce this deadline for these two forms without further notice while this rulemaking is underway.
Employers can continue to electronically report their Calendar Year (CY) 2017 Form 300A data to OSHA, but submissions after July 1, 2018 will be flagged as “Late”. Remember, not all establishments are covered by this requirement.
