The OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (Form 300), Summary (Form 300A), and Instructions can be found in the Forms section of the HR Support Center by searching for OSHA Form 300. Click the link that says, “OSHA Form 300, 300A, 301, and Instructions.” The documents can also be downloaded from OSHA directly here.
If your workplace is currently closed because of COVID-19 and you are unable to post the log there, we recommend posting it on a company intranet page, bulletin board, or other location online where it can be easily seen and accessed by employees. If you return to the workplace before April 30, you should also physically post it at that time.
Form 300A Electronic Submission Required for Certain Employers by March 2
Employers must send their Calendar Year 2020 Form 300A data to OSHA if they have 250 or more employees or have 20–249 employees and are in certain high-risk industries. Employers must use OSHA’s online Injury Tracking Application (ITA). The deadline to submit the report is March 2, 2021.
Employers that meet any of the following criteria DO NOT have to send their information to OSHA:
- Employers that are exempt from OSHA’s routine recordkeeping requirements, as mentioned above.
- Employers that never had 20 or more employees during the previous calendar year, regardless of industry.
- Employers that had between 20 and 249 employees at some point during the previous calendar year but are NOT on this list of high-risk industries.
The electronic reporting requirements are based on the size of the establishment (how many employees are at the physical location), not how many employees are in the entire company.
Employers that are required to send their Form 300A to OSHA must submit injury and illness data in the ITA online portal, even if the employer is covered by a State Plan that has not completed adoption of their own state rule.
Additional information, FAQs, and the Injury Tracking Application can be found on OSHA’s site, here.
