Specific Employers Required to Submit 2017 Injury and Illness Data by July 1

The deadline for electronically submitting 2017 Form 300A data to OSHA is July 1, 2018.  Electronic submissions are required of establishments with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records, and establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in specific industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses.  Previously, employers subject to state-run OSHA plans did not need to submit data until the state where they were located actually implemented its own rule. OSHA has now taken the position that all employers that are subject to state-run OSHA plans are required to comply with electronic reporting requirements prospectively by July 1, 2018.
