OSHA 300A Deadlines

As your Risk Management partner, we want to make sure you are aware of the following OSHA
Summary Posting
Form 300A summarizes work-related injuries and illnesses recorded in 2018. Employer requirements
include keeping and maintaining an OSHA 300 injury and illness log. The 300A summary sheet must be
posted in a prominent location from February 1 to April 30.
Employers with 10 or fewer employees or who work in certain low-hazard industries are not required to
post the summary.

Electronic Submission
Companies employing 250 or more workers are currently required to electronically submit their 2018
Form 300A data to OSHA by March 2.
However, OSHA has published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend its recordkeeping
regulation. It would remove the requirement to electronically submit to OSHA information from the
OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and OSHA Form 301 (Injury and Illness
Incident Report) for establishments with 250 or more employees which are required to routinely keep
injury and illness records. OSHA will not enforce this deadline for these two forms without further notice
while this rule-making is underway.
Remember, not all establishments are covered by this requirement. To review which establishments
need to provide their data, visit OSHA Injury Tracking Application.
