OSHA COMPLIANCE ALERT

DOL LogoUpdate: Injury Tracking Application (ITA) is Up and Running

In May 2016, OSHA announced a new reporting rule requiring employers to submit the information from their 300A form electronically. The submission deadline for the first transmittal was set to be July 1, 2017, but was pushed back until December 1, 2017. The Injury Tracking Application is now accepting 2016 injury data.

Who needs to submit electronically? What forms must be provided? Deadlines for submissions?
Employers with 250 or more employees
  • Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries & Illnesses)
  • 300A (Summary of  Work-Related Injuries & Illnesses)  
  • 301 (Injury & Illness Incident Report)
  • In 2017, must submit completed 2016 Form 300A by Dec. 1, 2017.
  • In 2018, must submit all completed 2017 forms (300A, 300, and 301) by July 1, 2018.
  • In 2019 and every year thereafter, must submit all forms by March 2.
Employers with 20-249 employees that are classified in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses. OSHA Form 300A
  • In 2017, completed 2016 Form 300A by Dec. 1, 2017.
  • In 2018, must submit information from their completed 2017 Form 300A by July 1, 2018.
  • In 2019 and every year thereafter, must submit all forms by March 2.

Note that the following OSHA-approved State Plans have not yet adopted the requirement to submit injury and illness reports electronically: CA, MD, MN, SC, UT, WA and WY. Similarly, state and local government establishments in IL, ME, NJ, and NY are not currently required to submit their data through the ITA.

How will you report? OSHA has a secure website that offers three options for data submission.

  • Users will be able to manually enter data into a web form.
  • Users will be able to upload a CSV file to process single or multiple establishments at the same time.
  • Users of automated recordkeeping systems will have the ability to transmit data electronically via an API (application programming interface).

OSHA will provide status updates and related information as it becomes available on its website at https://www.osha.gov/injuryreporting/
