Preparing for OSHA’s Electronic Recordkeeping Deadline
Posted on February 19, 2021 | in EHS
The February 1 deadline for non-exempt businesses covered by OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule to post OSHA Form 300A has passed, but recordkeeping obligations are not over. Covered employers must keep Form 300A posted in a location where all employees can clearly see it through April 30, and some must also submit Form 300A data electronically, via OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA), by March 2.
Who Must Submit Form 300A Data Electronically?
The ITA obligation applies to establishments covered by OSHA’s electronic Recordkeeping Rule with 250 or more employees, as well as establishments with 20-249 employees that are covered by the Recordkeeping Standard and operating in certain industries with high rates of injuries and illnesses.
