Even though OSHA recently eliminated the need for employers to electronically submit OSHA Forms 300 and 301, citing privacy concerns, companies are still responsible for submitting OSHA Form 300A – and the deadline is fast approaching.

By March 2nd, 2019, all non-exempt construction companies must submit their OSHA Form 300A for 2018, which is the Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, to OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA).

Employers that had less than 10 employees at all times during the course of 2018 are exempt from this requirement, as long as neither OSHA nor the Bureau of Labor Statistics has informed that company in writing that they must keep records, according to OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1904.1.

According to OSHA, the majority of companies failed to submit their 300A form last year. Those who fail to submit could face the possibility of receiving an other-than-serious violation with a maximum penalty of $13,260, which is 2.5% higher than last year after OSHA’s yearly inflation adjustment.

Visit OSHA’s OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA) to submit your company’s 300A form before the deadline is up.
