In an ongoing effort to notify clients about risk management trends and regulatory information, Univest Insurance would like to remind you of OSHA’s requirement regarding electronic submission of injury and illness records and the upcoming deadline.
ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION OF INJURY AND ILLNESS RECORDS TO OSHA
OSHA’s rule within Part 1904 requires the electronic reporting of workplace injuries and illnesses through their online services. Employers are required to electronically report their calendar year 2019 Form 300A data to OSHA by March 2, 2020.
Reporting requirements are as follows:
- Establishments with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records.
- Establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses.
- The size of the establishment is based on the maximum number of employees which worked at your company at any point in the year you are submitting data for.

How do I submit the required information to OSHA?
- Log onto www.OSHA.gov/injuryreporting/
- On the Injury Tracking Application page, please take time to review the information offered within the Frequently Asked Questions section.
- When you are ready to begin the submission process, click on the ‘Launch the Injury Tracking Application’ tab (red tab) located in the upper right-hand side of the screen and follow the stated instructions. The time required to complete the process has been estimated at 20 minutes.
- There is a new requirement to provide your Employer Identification Number (EIN). Returning ITA account holders will be prompted to provide this number when logging in. EIN is also known as your Federal Tax Identification Number and is a unique nine-digit number assigned by the IRS.
