U.S. Labor Department’s OSHA Accepting Electronically Submitted Injury, Illness Reports Through Dec. 31
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will continue accepting 2016 OSHA Form 300A data through the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) until midnight on Dec. 31. OSHA won't take enforcement action against those employers who submit their reports after the Dec. 15 deadline but before Dec. 31, final entry date. Starting Jan. 1, the ITA will no longer accept the 2016 data.
Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.
