Covered employers face a March 2 deadline for submitting their 2021 workplace injury and illness data electronically on Form 300A to the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration.

Form 300A data must be submitted annually by employers with 250 or more employees or by smaller employers in certain industries with a high rate of occupational injuries and illnesses. Employers must use OSHA’s online Injury Tracking Application (ITA).

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.

A complete list of business classified in the following North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) that are required to keep OSHA injury and illness records – unless they meet the small employer exemption – can be found here.

Smaller workplaces with 20 to 249 employees must also file Form 300A if they are in a specific industry with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses, such as manufacturing, utilities, wholesale trades, and general freight trucking. For a list of NAICS codes that apply to employers with at least 20 workers go here.

When submitting form 300A to OSHA, it is important that employers provide the correct employer identification number (EIN).

OSHA does not send out notifications to employers reminding them to report their Form 300A data. Additional information, FAQs, and the Injury Tracking Application can be found on OSHA’s site, here.
