March 2, 2019, Deadline for Submitting Electronic OSHA Records

OSHA’s electronic recordkeeping rule requires certain employers (including hardware dealers), with 20 or more employees to electronically submit injury and illness data that they are already required to record on Forms 300A, 300, and/or 301. Beginning this year and moving forward, the deadline to submit records has been moved up to March 2. Remember to submit 2018 injury and illness data electronically no later than March 2, 2019.

Please Note:  The Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses is a separate program from the OSHA electronic reporting program. Therefore, even if you have completed and submitted the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, you must still electronically submit injury and illness data to OSHA.


  • Establishments with 250 or more employees.
  • Establishments with 20 to 249 employees that are classified in certain industries (including hardware retailers). For a complete list of covered industries, go to https://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/NAICScodesforelectronicsubmission.pdf.
  • Establishments with less than 20 employees are not required to routinely submit information to OSHA electronically unless they have been specifically notified by OSHA.

Definition of Establishment
A single physical location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed. A firm may be comprised of one or more establishments. To determine if you need to provide OSHA with the required data for an establishment, you need to determine the establishment's peak employment during the last calendar year. Each individual employed in the establishment at any time during the calendar year counts as one employee, including full-time, part-time, seasonal, and temporary workers.

HOW TO SUBMIT DATA ELECTRONICALLY Go to OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA) website, https://www.osha.gov/injuryreporting/index.html. On the ITA website, view the “How” and/or “Job Aids (How-To documentation)” for additional submission support.

For additional OSHA information, log into “My MHA” and click on “OSHA Resources”. You may also contact Andrea Ramage at andrear@midwesthardware.com or 800-888-1817, ext. 365.
