New OSHA Reporting Rules Expand Electronic Reporting for Certain Employers

Printer-friendly version

Effective January 1, 2024, OSHA is requiring business establishments with 100 or more employees in certain designated high-risk industries to electronically submit information from their OSHA Forms 300 and 301 to the agency annually.  OSHA will electronically gather data through the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) and publish some of the data collected on its website in an effort to increase transparency regarding workplace injuries.

The ITA launch page has answers to frequently asked questions, as well as a tool for employers to determine if they are covered by this new requirement.

The final rule retains the current requirements for electronic submission of information from Form 300A from establishments with 20-249 employees in certain high-hazard industries and from establishments with 250 or more employees in industries that must routinely keep OSHA injury and illness records.

The due date to submit the information is March 2, 2024.
