2017 OSHA 300A summary data must be reported to the ITA website by July 1, 2018. But don’t bother setting an annual recurring event in your tasking software … starting in 2019 and every subsequent year, the reporting deadline will be March 2nd.
Remember that not every business needs to report OSHA log summaries to ITA. Here is the criteria for evaluating your business (or for evaluating each business establishment, if your company is comprised of multiple OSHA injury-logging establishments).
No reporting is necessary for establishments meeting EITHER of the following conditions:
- Less than 20 employees (using the maximum employee count at any time in 2017)
- Conducting business in an industry that is considered “partially-exempt” under OSHA guidelines
If your NAICS code was not on that partially-exempt list and you had 20 or more employees, your next step is to check whether your business is on the list of industries considered hazardous. If so, then you must report. Otherwise, you must report only if you had 250 or more employees in 2017.
The summary data uploaded to your ITA account can be edited and corrected up to the reporting deadline, so there is no reason not to get it submitted now. If you already registered last year to report for 2016, just log in and follow the instructions for reporting your 2017 data, which can be done by uploading the data fields on a CSV file (click here for a sample), or, you can choose to be walked through individual data entry prompts.
