Cal/OSHA is reminding employers in California of the requirement to electronically submit by March 2 their Form 300A injury and illness data for calendar year 2018.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) adopted the Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses rule in 2016. This rule requires electronic submission of certain occupational injury and illness reports by covered employers with at least 250 employees and by smaller employers in high-risk industries.

Employers in California with establishments meeting one of the requirements below are required to electronically submit Form 300A data for those establishments:

– – All establishments with 250 or more employees, unless specifically exempted by section 14300.2 of title 8 of the California Code of Regulations.

– – ;Establishments with 20 to 249 employees in the specific industries listed in Appendix H of Cal/OSHA’s emergency regulations.

For instructions on how to submit the data, follow the guidance on federal OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application website.
