March 2 OSHA deadline coming up

Some of the filing requirements for OSHA have been dropped, but some employers still face a March 2 filing deadline.

March 2 is the deadline for electronically reporting the 300A data for employers with peak employment between 20 and 249 workers during the previous calendar year. It also applies to certain industries and establishments with 250+ employees.

But MIOSHA is suspending enforcement of the requirement for employers to electronically submit information from the Form 300 “Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses,” and the Form 301 “Injury and Illness Incident Report” to OSHA.

The suspension is based on OSHA’s rescission of the federal rules requiring electronic submission of the Forms 300 and 301.

In July 2018, OSHA stopped accepting electronic submission of the 300 and 301 data, so compliance is an impossibility. Employers still have to maintain the Forms 300 and 301 on-site.
