OSHA plans an August 1 launch for the Injury Tracking Application (ITA), a web-based form allowing employers to electronically submit injury and illness data from their 2016 Form 300A. The agency published a notice of proposed rulemaking in June to extend the data submission deadline to December 2017 to afford affected entities sufficient time to familiarize the electronic reporting system, and the Trump Administration an opportunity to review the new electronic reporting requirements.
Data submission involves creating an establishment, adding and relaying 300A summary data, and reviewing a confirmation email. The secure ITA website offers three submission options: one will enable users to manually enter data into a web form; another will give users the ability to upload a CSV file to process single or multiple establishments at the same time; and, a third will allow users of automated recordkeeping systems to transmit data electronically via an application programming interface. The ITA webpage will include information on reporting requirements, a list of frequently asked questions, and a link to request assistance with completing the form.
