The OSHA Form 300A is a summary of work-related injuries and illnesses by establishments with 250 or more employees. Each February through April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year through the Injury Tracking Application (ITA).
An establishment is defined by OSHA as “a single physical location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed. A firm may consist of one or more establishments.” Establishments that meet specific requirements and are in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses, must complete the OSHA Form 300A. To determine if you need to provide OSHA with the required summary data from Form 300A, the ITA has included FAQs and additional resources to help guide you.
For 2019, the deadline to electronically submit information from the OSHA Form 300A was March 2, 2020. If you missed the deadline, the ITA will still accept your submission through the end of the calendar year.
