You may still have New Year’s champagne leftover or if you’re like us, you keep typing 2018 instead of 2019. None-the-less, it’s time to start thinking about an important 2019 OSHA recordkeeping deadline.
Employers with 250+ employees and employers in certain industries with 20 – 249 employees must comply. Check your industry here:
The OSHA 300A (a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded from the previous year) must be posted by Feb. 1 and the information from the 300A entered on the OSHA website by March 2. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.
You’ll need to submit it electronically through OSHA’s secure website. If you need assistance, Safex can help. Give us a call today.
Special note for establishments with 250 or more employees: Under the current recordkeeping rule, the initial deadline for electronic submission of information from OSHA Forms 300 and 301 by covered establishments with 250 or more employees was July 1, 2018. However, 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) for establishments with 250 or more employees which are required to routinely keep injury and illness records. OSHA will not enforce this deadline for these two forms without further notice while this rulemaking is underway.
