New year, same reminder! Here are a few important OSHA record-keeping requirements.
Don’t Forget to Post Your OSHA 300A Forms!
If your business had more than 10 employees at any time during 2019, and your industry is not classified as a partially exempt industry, you must post your OSHA 300A – Summary of Work Related Injuries and Illnesses for 2019 from February 1, 2020 through April 30, 2020. For more information, here’s a link to OSHA Recordkeeping Requirements.
Revised Requirements for Electronic Submission of Records
The Final Rule for Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses was issued 1/25/19. For those establishments that are required to submit electronically to OSHA it is only your Form 300A Summary Log data and must be submitted by March 2, 2020. See below if your establishment is required to submit your data electronically.
Establishments that meet any of the following criteria do not have to send their information to OSHA. Remember, these criteria apply at the establishment level, not to the firm as a whole.
- Establishment’s with peak employment during 2019 calendar year was 19 or fewer, regardless of the establishment’s industry.
- Your establishment’s industry is on this list, regardless of the size of the establishment.
- The establishment had a peak employment between 20 and 249 employees during 2019 calendar year AND your establishment’s industry is not on this list.
