As of August 1st, employers who are required to file OSHA Form 300A are now able to do it electronically. Employers who have to report this data to OSHA have until December 1st, 2017. Those required to file include large employers with more than 250 employees and smaller employers with 20-250 employees whose business falls into a number of industry categories with historically large numbers of worker illnesses and injuries.
OSHA’s secure website will provide employers with three options for reporting:
- Submitting data manually through a form on the secure site
- Uploading a CSV file
- Using an API to connect to the databases of certain automated recorded keeping systems
This electronic submission of injury and illness records represents something new for OSHA. If you have questions regarding reporting requirements or the specifics of using this new system OSHA’s electronic reporting FAQ page contains helpful information.
