Many California businesses faced a last-minute push in 2018 to comply with an emergency regulation on injury reporting. But the scramble for compliance doesn’t end there.
This all relates to the electronic submission of your 300A form to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Under the emergency regulation, these injury reporting forms for the 2017 calendar year are due to OSHA by December 31, 2018. In addition, the 2018 version of your 300A forms are due to OSHA by March 2, 2019.
The good news for employers is that March 2 is also the annual deadline moving forward. This means Forms 300A covering 2019 will be due on March 2, 2020.
This regulation applies to:
- All California employers with 250 employees or more at any point during the calendar year, or
- California employers with 20 or more employees in more than 50 specific industries identified in Appendix H of the regulation.
Use the Federal OSHA Injury Tracking Application to submit your Form 300A.
