Effective January 1, 2017, OSHA revised its requirements for recording and electronically submitting work-related injuries and illnesses records for posting to the OSHA website. The new reporting requirements will be phased in over three years and pertain to establishments with 20+ employees in industries covered by the record-keeping regulation. The new requirements pertain to the following records:
- OSHA 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses: most companies are required to maintain this log on an annual basis to record all work-related injuries and illnesses.
- OSHA 300A Annual Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses: a summary of injury data for the previous year that must be posted from February 1 to April 30 of the following year.
- OSHA 301 Injury and Illness Incident Report: an accident report that must be completed on all work-related incidents.
Note: These forms can be obtained here. OSHA will provide a secure website with three options for data submission. The new reporting requirements will be phased in over three years. The following table illustrates compliance deadlines:
|Establishments with 250+ employees||Establishments with 20-249 employees||Submission deadline|
