Starting January 1, 2024, businesses in specific high-risk industries will have new safety reporting requirements from the U.S. Department of Labor. Companies with 100 or more employees will need to submit information annually from their Form 300 (log of work-related injuries and illnesses) and Form 301 (injury and illness incident report) electronically to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This is in addition to their current requirement of submitting Form 300A (summary of work-related injuries and illnesses).
Additionally, businesses are now required to include their legal company name when submitting these electronic reports. Some of this information will be publicly available on the OSHA website, to help various stakeholders understand a company’s safety record and make informed decisions.
Businesses with 20-249 employees in these high-hazard industries and businesses with 250 or more employees who are already required to keep OSHA injury and illness records, will continue to submit Form 300A electronically. This rule is aimed at helping reduce occupational injuries and illnesses by providing the public and OSHA with a better understanding of the safety issues workers face in these industries.
