OSHA Launched Recordkeeping App

OSHA Logo 11.14

In July, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced the plan to release online injury and illness reporting tools. This would allow employers to submit their completed 2016 forms as mandated by the new electronic record keeping requirements. The deadline for the new mandates was pushed back from July 01 to December 01 to allow all employers a chance to review the provisions.

The online “Injury Tracking Application” or ITA can be accessed HERE, starting August 01. According to OSHA’s website, the data reporting process has four steps:

  1. Create an establishment.
  2. Add the 200A summary data.
  3. Submit data to OSHA.
  4. Review the confirmation email.

When it comes to submitting the data, users will have three options:

  1. Manually enter the data using the web form
  2. Upload a CSV file to processes one or more establishments at the same time
  3. Transmit data electronically through your existing automated recordkeeping systems

Of course, the OSHA ITA site also has a FAQ page to answer most questions you may have. For more information, visit www.OSHA.gov.
