OSHA Not Currently Accepting Electronic Submissions of Form 300A Information
by Gregg Kennerly | Published Monday, July 10, 2017
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced that it is not accepting electronic submissions of information from 2016 Forms 300A at this time. As a result, OSHA has proposed extending the July 1, 2017 date by which certain employers are required to electronically submit these forms pursuant to its recent “Electronic Recordkeeping Rule” to December 1, 2017.
‘Electronic Recordkeeping Rule’ Explained
The Electronic Recordkeeping Rule, generally effective as of January 1, 2017, requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data to OSHA that they are already required to record on their OSHA Forms 300A. Under the rule, the following entities were required to make these submissions by July 1, 2017:
- Establishments with 250 or more employees in industries covered by OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements.
- Establishments with 20-249 employees in certain high-risk industries.
