OSHA to release accident-reporting tool

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) is set to launch a web-based tool that will enable electronic submission of injury and illness data.

The Injury Tracking Application (ITA) will allow employers to submit the required data from their completed 2016 OSHA Form 300A.

Last month, OSHA published a notice of proposed rulemaking to extend the deadline for submitting 2016 Form 300A to 1 December 2017. The delay is designed to allow affected entities sufficient time to familiarize themselves with the electronic reporting system, and to provide the new administration with an opportunity to review the new electronic reporting requirements prior to implementation.

The secure website offers three options for data submission. One option will enable users to manually enter data into a web form. Another option will give users the ability to upload a CSV file to process single or multiple establishments at the same time. A third option will allow users of automated recordkeeping systems to transmit data electronically via an application programming interface.

The ITA webpage also includes information on reporting requirements, a list of frequently asked questions and a link to request assistance with completing the form.
