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).
OSHA or the Bureau of Labor Statistics may require otherwise exempt establishments to submit these reports on a special, case-by-case basis.
- 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 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.
Employers must count every individual that worked at that establishment, regardless of whether he or she worked full-time, part-time, or was a temporary or seasonal worker.
