Covered employers (having more than 10 employees at any point in 2022) are required to post the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Form 300A (Summary of Injuries) from February 1 through April 30 unless their industry qualifies as an exempt low-risk industry. The employee count is based on the number of employees in the entire company. Employers are not required to create OSHA injury and illness records for any establishment classified in the following North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
All covered employers are required to post Form 300A even if they didn’t have any recordable incidents in 2022. Recordable incidents are required to be maintained on the OSHA Form 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. OSHA Form 300A must be signed (and certified) by a company executive and posted in a conspicuous location for employees and where other important notices are customarily posted. OSHA records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years.
Electronic Reporting: Employers must submit their 2022 Form 300A data to OSHA if they have 250 or more employees or have 20–249 employees and are in certain high-risk industries. Employers must send this data electronically, using OSHA’s online Injury Tracking Application (ITA). The deadline to submit the report is March 2, 2023.
On March 30, 2022, OSHA published a new rule to improve the Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses that would require establishments with 20 or more employees, in certain high-hazard industries to continue to electronically submit Form 300A Annual Summary information once a year to OSHA. Establishments with 100 or more employees in the highest-hazard industries to submit Form 300 Log and Form 301 Incident Report information once a year to OSHA. And, establishments with 250 or more employees, not in designated high-hazard industries, would no longer be required to electronically submit recordkeeping information to OSHA.
Update: The OSHA Injury Tracking Application (ITA) transitioned its login procedure to the public’s one account access to government applications, Login.gov. All current and new account holders must connect their ITA account to a Login.gov account with the same email address to access the application for the 2023 collection of Calendar Year 2022 Form 300A data.
