Reminder to post your OSHA Form 300A Log Summary by February 1, 2020
It’s that time of year again. February 1, 2020 marks the deadline for industries required to maintain an OSHA 300 Log to tabulate their annual OSHA Log Summary (OSHA Form 300A) and post it in a common area (i.e. wherever notices to employees are usually posted).
The OSHA Log Summary – which is required to remain posted until April 30, 2020 – must list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that were logged in the calendar year of 2019. See OSHA’s Recordkeeping website for additional information.
Now Open: Electronic Submission of 2019 OSHA Form 300A Data
Employers can now (as of January 2, 2020) begin to electronically report their Calendar Year (CY) 2019 Form 300A data to OSHA through the agency’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA) website. All covered establishments must submit the information by March 2, 2020. While employers can view their previously submitted Form 300A summary information, they cannot edit or submit additional data on the ITA website.
If your establishment meets any one of the following criteria, you DO NOT have to send Form 300A data to OSHA electronically. Remember, this criteria applies at the establishment level, not to the firm as a whole.
- Peak employee count during the previous calendar year was 19 or fewer, regardless of the establishment’s industry
- Industry is on the partially exempt list, regardless of the size of the establishment
- Peak employee count of between 20 and 249 during the previous calendar year AND the establishment’s industry is not on this list
