OSHA electronic injury reporting deadline: Dec. 15

Yes, certain businesses will have to electronically submit injury records to OSHA in December. But the compliance date has changed. 

OSHA has extended the deadline for employers to electronically report injury and illness data through the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) to Dec. 15, 2017. This is a two-week extension from the previous Dec. 1, 2017, compliance date.

Under OSHA’s rule, Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses, all facilities with 250 or more employees in industries covered by the existing OSHA recordkeeping regulation must electronically submit to OSHA injury and illness information from Form 300, 300A and 301. Facilities with 20-249 employees in certain industries must electronically submit information from Form 300A only.

Unless an employer is under federal jurisdiction, the following State Plans haven’t yet adopted the requirement to submit injury reports electronically: California, Maryland, Minnesota, South Carolina, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

OSHA is reviewing its final rule and intends to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking to reconsider, revise or remove portions of the rule in 2018.
