Did you meet the March 2 deadline to electronically report to OSHA?

Establishments with 250 or more employees who are currently required keep OSHA records are also required to electronically submit information from their OSHA Form 300A.

This electronic reporting requirement must also be met by covered establishments in certain industries with 20-249 employees. The list of certain industries includes construction, manufacturing, wholesale trade and dozens more.

The deadline for electronically submitting 2018 data was March 2, 2019.

OSHA has provided a secure website for online reporting. This can be done via a web form, an uploaded CSV file or with an automated recordkeeping system.

Non-compliance with this requirement can, and has, resulted in fines and penalties. Fines and penalties can be assessed by both OSHA and MIOSHA.
