The OSHA law requires most employers with 10 or more full-time employees to maintain an OSHA Form 300 log of all work-related injuries and illnesses for each calendar year. Employers in Low Hazard Industries are exempt from maintaining an OSHA Form 300 log even if they have more than 10 employees.
All other covered employers should ensure their 2021 OSHA Form 300 has been fully completed at this time. In addition, all covered employers should complete and post their OSHA Form 300A (Summary Report of Injuries) from Tuesday, February 1st through April 30th. Also, as a reminder, covered employers must save their OSHA Form 300 log and Form 300A reports for five years.
In addition, OSHA requires all covered employers with 250+ employees or employers with 20 -249 employees in designated High Hazard Industries to submit their 2021 OSHA 300A summary data onto the OSHA Injury Tracking Application by March 1, 2022. If your organization is required to submit this data and you have not previously created an account on the ITA, you will be required to create an account at this time to submit this data. Note: OSHA does not send covered employers a reminder to submit their injury data electronically on the Injury Tracking Application. For more information on the ITA requirements, please refer to the following link to the OSHA Injury Tracking Application.
If you have any questions regarding the posting requirements of the OSHA 300A or OSHA electronic record keeping or require any assistance, please reach out to Steve Marklay at firstname.lastname@example.org.
