• OSHA Extends Electronic Recordkeeping Deadline
  • June 29, 2017
  • In a May 17, 2017 email distributed to various stakeholders, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) stated that it will extend the July 1, 2017 compliance date for electronic submissions of the 2016 Form300A report of injuries and illnesses because the agency has yet to roll out the secure website for posting the reports. While OSHA has not specified a substitute deadline, the original July 1, 2017 deadline had been applicable to LeadingAge members in the following categories:

    • Employers with 250 or more employees - OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301 must by submitted annually by the employer.
    • 20 or more, but less than 250 in certain identified industries - OSHA Form 300A must be submitted annually by the employer. (Certain identified industries include: nursing care facilities (NAICS 6231), community care facilities for the elderly (NAICS 6233) and other residential care facilities (NAICS 6293)).
    Other employers who receive notification from OSHA to electronically submit their OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and 301.
