PACIF recently learned from VOSHA that all employers, including municipalities, that had 20 or more employees at any time during 2017 must file their 2017 OSHA Form 300A, Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, electronically by July 1, 2018. The new regulation, 1910.41, is now in effect and requires electronic reporting on an annual basis. It is important to note that the head count includes full-time, part-time, and seasonal employees as well as paid elected officials.
Although the deadline has passed, if your municipality qualifies, you should file your OSHA 300A data electronically as soon as possible. Information regarding this electronic reporting is on the OSHA website at https://www.osha.gov/injuryreporting/index.html.
If you have any questions about this requirement or more basic questions about the OSHA 300 and 300A forms, please contact your PACIF loss control consultant.
