Maryland Adopts OSHA’s Electronic Injury and Illness Reporting Requirement - MOSH Training and Education
Please be aware that on September 8, 2020, the State of Maryland formally adopted federal OSHA’s online electronic reporting requirement. This rule adoption requires employers in certain industries to report their occupational injury and illness data from their OSHA Log 300A Summary Form(s) to OSHA’s online Injury Tracking Application or ITA website. This new requirement affects both private and public sector employers in the State of Maryland.
Please note however that not all employers are required to submit this information. There are two conditions whereby an employer must provide these data. First, if your establishment had 250 or more employees during the previous calendar year, and your establishment is in an industry required to keep OSHA injury and illness records on an ongoing or routine basis, you must provide these data online. Second, if your establishment had 20 or more employees but fewer than 250 during the previous calendar year, and you are in one of the identified high-hazard industries found in Appendix A to Subpart E, in 29 CFR 1904.41(a)(2) of the OSHA recordkeeping regulation, you must submit your OSHA log summary data.
List of high-hazard industries.
Employers who meet the conditions for electronic reporting may begin to submit their calendar year 2020 occupational injury and illness summary data beginning on January 1, 2021 and will have until March 2, 2021.
Please see the link below to OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application.
Finally, please know that OSHA’s electronic reporting requirement is completely independent of, and has no bearing on, the annual injury and illness survey reporting to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
