Man working on laptop 300x168Under current OSHA regulations for 2019, all companies with more than 20 employees are required to report their OSHA 300A Summary Form only electronically through a special website. Electronic reporting OSHA Form 300A data for calendar year 2018 information is due March 2, 2019. Collections began Jan. 2, 2019. 

SMACNA employers with 10 or more employees are required to maintain annual injury and illness records per OSHA regulations.  For February through April 2019, employers must post a summary of their injuries and illnesses (OSHA Form 300A) recorded in 2018. The records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives. 

For companies with 250 employees or more, OSHA has published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend its recordkeeping regulation to remove the requirement to electronically submit to OSHA information from the OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and OSHA Form 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report). OSHA will not enforce this deadline for these two forms without further notice while this rulemaking is underway.

For further information on posting and reporting OSHA records, contact Mike McCullion, director of market sectors and safety, at mmccullion@smacna.org.
