OSHA Provides Employers with Brief Grace Period to Electronically Submit 300A Data

Employers that were unable to electronically submit required data from their 300A Summary Forms by December 15, 2017 can breathe a sigh of relief. This morning, OSHA announced it “will not take enforcement action against those employers who submit their reports after the December 15, 2017, deadline but before December 31, 2017, final entry date.” OSHA warns, however, its website application (the Injury Tracking Application) will no longer accept any 2016 Form 300A data beginning on January 1, 2018.

As a reminder, OSHA’s rule to “Improve Tracking of Workplace of Injuries and Illnesses” required all establishmentswith 250 or more employees and establishments with 20 - 249 employees in certain NAICS codes to electronically submit to OSHA data from Form 300A by December 15, 2017.
