OSHA Launches Application to

Electronically Submit Injury, Illness Data
ON AUG. 1, THE OCCUPATIONAL
Safety and Health Administration OSHA
launched the Injury Tracking Application
(ITA), a web-based form that allows employers to electronically submit to the agency
required injury and illness data from their
completed 2016 OSHA Form 300A.
The data submission process involves
four steps: (1) Creating an establishment;
(2) adding 300A summary data; (3) submitting data to OSHA; and (4) reviewing the
confirmation email. The secure website
offers three options for data submission.
One option will enable users to manually
enter data into a web form. Another option
will give users the ability to upload a CSV
file to process single or multiple establishments at the same time. A third option will
allow users of automated recordkeeping
systems to transmit data electronically via
an application programming interface.
The initial deadline by which certain
employers would be required to electronically submit the information from their
completed 2016 Form 300A to OSHA was
July 1. On June 28, the agency published a
notice of proposed rulemaking to extend
the compliance date to Dec. 1, 2017. OSHA
received 78 comments on its proposal during the two-week comment period, which
ended on July 13.
OSHA's final rule to improve tracking of
workplace injuries and illnesses, which was
published in May 2016, requires certain
employers to transmit to OSHA information

about workplace injuries and illnesses,
which employers already record on OSHA
Forms 300, 300A, and 301.
Who This Will Affect
The Injury Tracking Application (ITA) will
be accessible from this page on August 1,
2017, where you will be able to provide
the agency your 2016 OSHA Form 300A
information. OSHA also published a notice
of proposed rulemaking to extend the date
by which certain employers are required
to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A electronically from
July 1, 2017 to December 1, 2017.
Who: Establishments with 250 or more
employees that are currently required to
keep OSHA injury and illness records, and
establishments with 20-249 employees
that are classified in certain industries with
historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses.
What: Covered establishments with 250
or more employees must electronically
submit information from OSHA Forms 300
(Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses),
300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries
and Illnesses), and 301 (Injury and Illness
Incident Report). Covered establishments
with 20-249 employees must electronically
submit information from OSHA Form 300A.

When: The requirement becomes effective on January 1, 2017. The new reporting
requirements will be phased in over two
years. In 2017, all covered establishments
must submit information from their completed 2016 Form 300A by July 1, 2017. In
2018, covered establishments with 250 or
more employees must submit information
from all completed 2017 forms (300A, 300,
and 301) by July 1, 2018, and covered establishments with 20-249 employees must
submit information from their completed
2017 Form 300A by July 1, 2018. Beginning
in 2019 and every year thereafter, covered
establishments must submit the information by March 2.
How: OSHA will provide a secure website that offers three options for data
submission. First, users will be able to
manually enter data into a web form.
Second, users will be able to upload a CSV
file to process single or multiple establishments at the same time. Last, users of
automated recordkeeping systems will
have the ability to transmit data electronically via an API (application programming interface). We will provide status
updates and related information here as
it becomes available.
Please note that construction employers
with 20 or more employees will be required
to submit their injury/illness data for 2017
More information about OSHA's final
rule is available on the agency's website,
www.osha.gov.
