OSHA extends deadline for injury, illness log summaries

Bloomberg BNA reports the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced employers now have more time to electronically file their 2016 injury and illness log summaries.

OSHA wrote in a Dec. 18, 2017, statement it is accepting the log summaries—officially called OSHA form 300A—until midnight Dec. 31. Employers who file by the deadline will not face citations. Companies are required to fill out the forms detailing the number of employee injuries and illnesses recorded in the workplace. The old deadline was Dec. 15.

ATD states dealerships required to electronically file Form 300A or equivalent include:

  • Commercial truck dealerships with 20 to 249 employees at a single “establishment,” defined as “a single location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed.”
  • Light-duty and commercial truck dealerships with 250 or more employees at a single establishment.

A North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) number is required for filing: commercial truck dealerships are NAICS 42311; light duty dealerships are NAICS 44111. Dealerships in the OSHA-approved State Plan states of California, Maryland, Minnesota, South Carolina, Utah, Washington or Wyoming are NOT required to file any forms.
