Employer Deadlines for 2018
OSHA has a new rule requiring certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data which is already required on their onsite OSHA Injury and Illness forms.
Does This Affect You?
This group includes employers with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records, as well as establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses. In addition, please note the states below* which have not yet adopted this electronic reporting requirement.
Employers who are in this group can now begin to electronically report their Calendar Year (CY) 2017 Form 300A data to OSHA. All covered establishments must submit the information by July 1, 2018. Employers can view their submitted CY 2016 Form 300A summary information, but they cannot edit or submit additional 2016 data on this website (the extended deadline for that information was December 31, 2017).
Beginning in 2019 and every year thereafter, covered establishments must submit the information by March 2.
