Electronic Submissions of Form 300A Data Due by Dec. 15
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has finalized December 15, 2017 as the date by which certain employers are required to electronically submit data from their 2016 Forms 300A to OSHA.
Who Must Comply?
By December 15, 2017, the following establishments—if currently required to comply with OSHA's recordkeeping requirements—are required to electronically submit data from their 2016 Forms 300A to OSHA:
- Establishments with 250 or more employees; and
- Establishments in certain designated industries with 20-249 employees.
However, according to OSHA, establishments in California, Maryland, Minnesota, South Carolina, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming are not yet required to submit data. Establishments located in these and other OSHA "State Plan" states should check with their states for the latest requirements.
Where Do I Submit the Data?
Covered establishments must submit the required data through OSHA's online Injury Tracking Application.
