The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reminds employers the agency is collecting the calendar year 2020 Form 300A data and is due by March 2, 2021. Per OSHA, employers have an obligation to report and record work-related COVID-19 cases. The collection of CY 2019 data and beyond will include the collection of establishments’ Employer Identification Numbers (EIN).
If you submit your data using a CSV file or API, you can view the new layout by selecting the “How” tab on the link below. Remember, not all establishments need to submit their OSHA 300A Data. Only a small fraction of establishments are required to electronically submit their Form 300A data to OSHA. Establishments that meet any of the following criteria do not have to send their information in. Remember, 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 peak employment between 20 and 249 employees during the previous calendar year AND the establishment’s industry is not on this list
