OSHA may soon require employers in certain high-hazard industries to submit additional information from their OSHA 300 injury and illness logs.
This proposed rule would:
- require employers with 100 or more employees in certain high-hazard industries to electronically submit information from Forms 300, 301 and 300A to OSHA once a year
- update the classification system used to determine the list of industries covered by the electronic submission requirement
- remove current requirements for establishments with 250 or more employees not in a designated industry to electronically submit Form 300A information to OSHA annually, and
- require employers to include their company name when filing electronic submissions with OSHA.
Employers with 20 or more employees in certain high-hazard industries would still be required to continue to electronically submit their Form 300A information to OSHA annually.
The extensive list of affected industries can be found at the end of OSHA’s Federal Register entry.
Comments on the proposed rule can be submitted here under Docket No. OSHA-2021-0006.
