Don’t Forget OSHA’s July 1, 2018 Filing Deadline
Any establishment with 250 or more employees that is required to keep OSHA injury and illness records — as well as establishments with between 19 and 250 employees in a broad range of industries (manufacturing, many types of retail establishments, hospitals, etc.) — must file their OSHA 300A forms for 2017 no later than July 1, 2018.
Again, it is only the OSHA 300A form that needs to be submitted at this time, which is simply a summary of the total number of deaths, number of cases with days away from work, number of cases with job transfers or restrictions and number of other recordable cases, as well as the total number of days away from work and total number of days of job transfers or restrictions. Generally, this is a pretty simple form to complete; the most difficult aspect of it is usually calculating the total hours worked by all employees in the year.
And don’t forget, starting next year, any information that needs to be filed electronically will need to be filed by March 2.
