OSHA 300 Recordkeeping – New Requirements (Waukesha, WI)
Print

As of October 11, many U.S. employers will be required to enter information from their 2016 OSHA 300A form on OSHA’s electronic recordkeeping website. There have been several extensions to this filing deadline and there may be more. 

With electronic recordkeeping, it is more important than ever for employers to report ONLY those injuries and illnesses required to be recorded on the OSHA log. Because many employers tend to over-report or incorrectly report injuries on the log, OSHA may prompt an inspection believing the employer is injuring more employees than their peers. With electronic recordkeeping, all employers required to report electronically will be subject to such inspections. 

The OSHA recordkeeping workshop will provide detailed information regarding what should, and should not, be reported on the OSHA 300 log. The workshop will also provide critical information regarding completion of the 300A form which will be reported or uploaded electronically. 

While the agency issues many citations to employers for inaccurate or incorrect recordkeeping, the most important consideration is avoiding an unnecessary inspection caused by over-reporting or incorrectly reporting this information. 

Workshop participants will also learn how to calculate OSHA incident rates and compare those rates to their peer group. Incident rates that exceed peer group rates are an indication of the opportunity to reduce injuries and incident rates. 

Simply completing and posting the OSHA 300 and 300A form is no longer enough. Affected employers MUST do a better job understanding and report only what the agency requires to be reported on the form or risk a costly and unnecessary inspection.
