A new regulation was passed in 2017 that pertains to your OSHA recordkeeping information. This regulation requires you to visit the OSHA Injury Tracking Application (ITA) via their website and submit your information digitally for each establishment. Here are few FAQs that may help you on this process.
Who has to submit their information?
Pretty much everyone if you have greater than 20 employees! If you are in the construction or general industry business, then you’re more than likely on the list. For a complete list of industries that are required to submit, visit this link: https://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/NAICScodesforelectronicsubmission.pdf
Where do I submit this information?
You’ll need to submit this information via the OSHA ITA web page. You can find that by following this link:
When do I need to submit this information by?
The 2019 300a information needs to be submitted before 03/01/2020.
I have 3 terminals throughout the country. Do I submit one for each or one for all?
You will need to submit information based on “establishments.” An establishment is defined by a physical address. You will need to submit information for each terminal individually that you had 20 or more employees at any point throughout 2019.
I had zero recordable injuries last year. Do I still need to submit?
Yes! Great job, but you still need to submit with zeros across the board.
We have 100 employees in two establishments. However, one establishment only has 15 employees the rest are at the second.
You would only submit the information for the establishment that had greater than 19 employees. However, you still would need to track (just not submit) your information for the other establishment.
We bought a new facility in November. Do I need to submit information for the whole year?
No, you are only required to submit the information based on your ownership time periods.
I was one of the “lucky” few that also received the request to submit my information to the BLS. Do I need to do this in addition to submitting my information to the ITA?
YES! These are two completely different requirements and you will need to submit your information to both.
NAICS code? Where do I find that?
You can look up your NAICS code here: https://www.naics.com/search/
Can multiple people have log ins to the ITA?
The system only allows one login per account. You would have to share the login to allow for multiple users
