Electronic Reporting of OSHA Form 300A Due March 2
Each year covered employers are required to comply with the OSHA electronic recordkeeping requirement to electronically submit injury and illness summary data that they are already required to record on their onsite OSHA Injury and Illness forms. The requirement to report summary data for 2021 is due by March 2, 2022 and applies to the following:
- Establishments with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records
- Establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses.
Establishments that meet any of the following criteria DO NOT have to send their information to OSHA. These criteria apply at the establishment level, not to the firm as a whole.
- The establishment's peak employment during the previous calendar year was 19 or fewer, regardless of the establishment's industry.
- The establishment's industry is on this list, regardless of the size of the establishment.
- The establishment had a peak employment between 20 and 249 employees during the previous calendar year AND the establishment's industry is not on this list.

The OSHA injury tracking application can be found here. There are also some helpful FAQs on the site.
Also keep in mind the electronic requirement is in addition to the covered employer requirement to physically post the OSHA 300A summary in their office from February 1 to April 30 each year.
