OSHA Electronic Reports Are Due March 2!

Each year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires certain employers to submit information from their OSHA Form 300A electronically. Affected employers must submit their reports using OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA).

Affected establishments include:

  • Establishments with 250 or more employees, if they are already required to create and maintain OSHA records; and
  • Establishments with between 20 and 249 employees that belong on a high-risk industry.

OSHA or the Bureau of Labor Statistics may require otherwise exempt establishments to submit these reports on a special, case-by-case basis.

OSHA will collect information on injuries and illnesses to identify emerging hazards, characterize specific areas of concern, or target inspection and outreach initiatives under OSHA’s emphasis program.


What Happens If We Don't Comply?

OSHA ComplianceViolations for materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements can be punished by a fine or by imprisonment of not more than five(5) years, or both. Failure to comply with these new OSHA regulations could result in OSHA Penalties such as a $14,502 fine and trigger a more detailed OSHA recordkeeping audit

The Department of Labor (DOL) has released its 2022 inflation-adjusted civil monetary penalties that may be assessed on employers for violations of a wide range of federal laws. These also include the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA Act) so it is important that employers become familiar with the new penalty amounts below and review their safety protocols to ensure compliance with federal requirements.

Keep in mind, these increased amounts apply to civil penalties that are assessed on or after January 15, 2022.
