The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires many employers with more than 10 employees to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. Certain employers in designated industries must submit Form 300A Annual Summary information to OSHA annually in electronic format. The deadline for submission is March 2, 2023.
Submission is required of employers that have:
- 250 or more employees and are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records.
- 20-249 employees classified in specific industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses.
Companies with establishments operating within federal OSHA states may use OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application to determine if they are required to electronically report information using NAICS code – 561730: Landscaping Services. Employers under State Plan jurisdiction should contact their State Plan directly to learn more about state-specific requirements.
On April 5, 2022, OSHA announced it was initiating an enforcement program to identify “employers who failed to submit Form 300A data through the agency’s Injury Tracking Application.” Given OSHA’s heightened enforcement focus in this area, it is important that employers pay close attention to their submission requirements.
