OSHA Reporting Deadline Approaching

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has extended the deadline for submitting OSHA 300 form information, required under the Improved Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses rule.

The new enforcement date of December 15, 2017 is quickly approaching. The Injury tracking Application (ITA) is accessible from the ITA launch page. This application is where you can provide OSHA the required elements of your 2016 OSHA forms.

As a reminder, establishments with 250 or more employees who are required to keep record of injuries and illnesses and establishments with 20-249 employees in high hazard industries must participate in this new rule. If you have 250 or more employees you must submit your OSHA 300 log, 300A summary and associated 301 forms for 2016. If you have 20-249 employees in a referenced high hazard industry you must only submit your 300A summary for 2016. Moving forward, employers will be required to submit their information each year by July 1st.

You can access detail directions and frequently asked questions regarding this new rule on the ITA launch page or feel free to contact the Loss Control Department at losscontrol@jwterrill.com.
