The time is now! Submit your OSHA 300A logs electronically

Posted by Mary Hallock on Apr 27, 2018 11:08:31 AM

More than a third of workplaces did not submit... Are you on the naughty list?

By the end of 2017, select employers were required to submit 300A forms containing 2016 data. Unfortunately for OSHA, only two-thirds of the anticipated 350,000 submissions were recorded. These organizations are now facing potential scrutiny and fines for these "other-than-serious" citations, and will be conducting inquiries until June 15, 2018.

Did you find yourself on the OSHA target list for not submitting? As a reminder, 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 are required to submit.

OSHA is asking all Illinois employers to review their safety and health programs and procedures carefully to avoid more workplace fatalities. Check out the U.S. Department of Labor’s October 5th News Release.
