In June 2017, OSHA implemented a new online OSHA 300 Log Recordkeeping Reporting requirement creating a lot of questions and concerns from companies about what this requirement means and what OSHA will do with this information. Even after more than a year and a half, confusion still abounds and many questions still remain unanswered.
Even if there were no recordable injuries or illnesses in 2018, you are still required to post the form with zeros on the total line. The 300A summary must remain posted until April 30, 2019.
With electronic recordkeeping, it is more important than ever for employers to report ONLY those injuries and illnesses required to be recorded on the OSHA log. Most of the employers tend to over-report or incorrectly report injuries on the log, OSHA may prompt an inspection believing the employer is injuring more employees than their peers. While the agency issues many citations to employers for inaccurate or incorrect recordkeeping, the most important consideration is avoiding an unnecessary inspection caused by over-reporting or incorrectly reporting this information.
