Federal OSHA Reporting Requirement

Effective January 1, 2017, employers in states regulated by federal OSHA were required to electronically submit Log 300 records of injuries and illnesses. As this was a federal program change, state-run safety and health programs like CalOSHA were required to respond and comply to the change.

CalOSHA has not yet completed its review of this change. However, on April 30, 2018, federal OSHA posted a “trade release” requiring all affected employers to submit injury and illness data in the federal OSHA Injury Tracking Application (ITA) online portal, even if the employer is covered by a state plan that has not completed adoption of their own state rule.

Construction employers with a workforce from 20 – 249 employees must report their Log 300 information for the year 2017, through the ITA portal by July 1, 2018.
