For covered employers, the OSHA 300A data must be entered electronically to the OSHA Web Portal. It is a good idea to enter your electronic data at the same time you are completing and posting the 300A form. Click here to access the OSHA Electronic Submission web site. Then, click “Launch the Injury Tracking Application” (Red button at top right side of screen). Here, you will log in and enter your data. This is essentially the same data contained on the 2020 300A form that you are posting.
The OSHA electronic reporting rule applies to all gins with 20 or more employees. Data reported is basically the information from the OSHA 300A form. To calculate your number of employees for determining whether you report, you simply determine the gins peak employment during the last calendar year. If there was one pay-period during the year where you had 20 or more employees on the payroll, then you are required to report. The employee count is based on each establishment separately, not the entire firm. Since separate records are maintained for each establishment, then the report is also based on each establishment. Please note this calculation is different than the one for calculating the Injury and Illness Incidence Rate.
