OSHA Form Changes


OSHA has modified the requirement for filing the Form 300 Injury and Illness Records to OSHA. Below is a breakdown of your responsibilities under the rule.

1-9 Employees

You are exempt from any record keeping. However, you are still required to report any fatality or hospitalization for three or more employees.


10-19 Employees

If you have 10-19 employees, you are required to keep a copy of the 300 Form and maintain records of any work related fatalities, injuries and illnesses.


20 or More Employees

You will be required to file the OSHA 300 Form electronically by using the “Injury Tracking Application” (ITA) website at https://www.osha.gov/injuryreporting/ita/.  You will need to establish a user name and password, but the site is user friendly and easy to use. Gather your payroll information and get started. If you need some additional information for completing the Form 300, visit http://youtu.be/DEBIWysDAZw .

The filing date for submitting the Form 300 electronically was December 15, 2017 for the year 2016 payroll data. There are some exceptions to the rule. The following approved OSHA-approved states Plans have not yet adopted the requirement to submit injury and illness reports electronically, including CA,MD,MN,SC,UT,WA , WY, IL, ME, NJ and NY.
