NEW OSHA Record Keeping Requirements for 2017

November 1st, 2017

Starting in 2017, OSHA created a new rule to the record keeping standard that requires organizations to submit their OSHA logs online to a webpage that OSHA has provided. The reasoning behind this change is OSHA believes that making injury information publicly available will motivate employers to focus on safety, which in return, will lead to more lives and limbs of workers saved. The new OSHA webpage to submit your organizations required information launched on August 1, 2017 and the deadline to submit the 300A Summary Form is December 1, 2017.

 

  •  OSHA is requiring all covered establishments to submit ONLY the 2016 300A Summary Form online before December 1, 2017.

 

Starting in 2018

  • Covered establishments with 250 or more employees must submit all completed 2017 forms (300A, 300 and 301) online before July 1, 2018.
  • Covered establishments with 20-249 employees must submit ONLY the 2017 300A Summary form online before July 1, 2018.
  • Beginning in 2019 and every year after, covered establishments must submit required forms by March 2.
