Electronic Injury Reporting

In 2016, federal OSHA for the first time mandated electronic submission of injury and illness data by employer establishment for the largest employers (Form 300, 301, and 300A), and required limited electronic submission by smaller employers from specific higher-hazard industries (Form 300A only).

This was one step in taking OSHA recordkeeping into the 21st Century, to make accessible data which employers already must collect. Unfortunately, the Trump Administration has reversed part of this rule, eliminating the requirement to submit the more detailed establishment-level information from large employers (Forms 300 and 301). Worksafe is advocating for California to collect this information, even though federal OSHA will not.
