Get ready, the new OSHA online reporting of injuries and illnesses will be phased in over the next two years. Currently, OSHA plans to launch its reporting web page on or before December 1, 2017. If you are trying to determine if your company will need to register and report your employee injury data, review the following information. Reporting will involve the company’s year end summary data contained in the OSHA 300A form.
What companies are required to report their annual OSHA 300A injury summary data?
- Large companies (250 or more employees) in industries covered by the recordkeeping regulation should be planning to submit information from their 2016 Form 300A when the OSHA site is launched. Large employers will be required to submit some or all information from all 2017 forms (300A, 300, and 301) by July 1, 2018. Beginning in 2019 and every year thereafter, the information must be submitted in March.
- Small and mid sized companies (20-249 employees) in certain high-risk industries must submit information from their 2016 Form 300A as described above. High-risk industries include companies in agriculture, manufacturing, construction, grocery stores, trucking, warehousing and hospitals. Click here for the entire list of NAICS codes.
- Low-risk industries, such as physician and dentist offices, many retail stores, accounting firms and others are not required to submit their data, check the entire list here.
- Under the current rule, companies with less than twenty (20) employees are not required to report.
