Important Dates for OSHA Recordkeeping

(0 comments)

Each year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires certain employers to submit information from their OSHA Form 300A electronically in in addition to displaying the forms in a prominent place at the worksite.  Failure to meet comply with these recordkeeping requirements and deadlines can result in OSHA penalties and more detailed recordkeeping. Let's take a closer look at these important dates along with what industries and establishments must comply.


OSHA 300A Injury & Illness

Annual OSHA 300A Summary Posting

Deadline: February 1, 2021

OSHA’s 300A Summary form records work-related injuries and illnesses recorded during the calendar year. Employer requirements include maintaining an OSHA 300 injury and illness log throughout the calendar year and summarizing the data on the 300A Summary form. The 300A Summary form should be posted in a prominent location in the workplace from February 1 to April 30, 2021.

It is important to note, employers with 10 or fewer employees, or who work in certain low-hazard industries, are not required to keep OSHA injury and illness records. To see if this applies to you, review the Partially Exempt Industry List.


Annual OSHA 300A Data Electronic Reporting

Deadline: March 2, 2021

For establishments with 250 or more workers (in one location), and establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses, are required to electronically submit their 2020 OSHA 300A Summary data to OSHA by March 2, 2021. 

You can review the industries with 20-249 employees who are required to electronically submit data to OSHA by visiting the US Department of Labor (USDOL) website. You can begin the submission process by logging into the Injury Tracking Application

  • Citing worker and employer privacy concerns, OSHA eliminated the requirement for employers to turn in the more detailed Forms 300 or 301. 
  • It is especially important that employers are aware of these OSHA recordkeeping rules because violations for materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements can be punished by a fine or by imprisonment of not more than five(5) years, or both.
  • Failure to comply with these new OSHA regulations could result in OSHA Penalties such as a $13,653 fine and trigger a more detailed OSHA recordkeeping audit.
