A quick heads up for you: deadlines for posting your OSHA Form 300A and electronically submitting your OSHA Form 300A injury & illness data at OSHA’s online submission website are both coming soon.
We’ve got the details you need to know below. Plus, feel free to download our FREE GUIDE TO OSHA REPORTING & RECORDKEEPING.
Post your establishment’s OSHA Form 300A at a place where employees can see it by February 1, 2019, keep it there until at least April 30, 2019.
And remember, even if you take OSHA Form 300A down after April 30, 2019, OSHA still requires you to keep 300A on file for at least 5 years after the year it summarizes. So, if you post your 2018 Form 300A this year, you need to keep it on file at least until the end of 2023.

Companies required to submit their 300A online to OSHA can do so now–OSHA began accepting this injury & illness data online on January 2. And you want to have it submitted by March 2, 2019, because that’s the deadline.
Which establishments have to submit the 300A to OSHA at their online site? Here’s how OSHA explains it:
For more clarification on which establishments must submit online, see the OSHA FAQ page and in particular the question “Who must submit information electronically to OSHA under the final rule?”
