OSHA announced the launch date for its secure website, which will allow certain employers to electronically submit Injury and Illness records, is next Tuesday, Aug. 1. Once the website is live, employers can begin submitting their 2016 OSHA Injury and Illness data to meet the reporting deadline of Dec. 1, 2017.

Who is required to comply with electronic reporting?  

All establishments with 250 or more employees in industries covered by the recordkeeping regulation must electronically submit to OSHA injury and illness information from OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and 301.

Establishments with 20-249 employees in certain higher hazard industries must electronically submit information from OSHA Form 300A only.

A full list of those industries can be found on the OSHA website.

OSHA defines an “establishment” as a single physical location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed.  A firm may be comprised of one or more establishments.
