OSHA Requires Employee Workplace Injury and Illness Records Filing

Jul 2, 2018 | Member News

Dealerships were required to electronically file 2017 employee workplace injury and illness records with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) by the July 1, 2018 deadline.

Dealerships required to report electronically by filing Form 300A or equivalent include:

· Commercial truck dealerships with 20 to 249 employees at a “single establishment” must electronically submit to OSHA their annual summary of employee workplace injuries and illnesses (Form 300A or equivalent); and

· Car and commercial truck dealerships with 250 or more employees at a “single establishment” (which is rare) must electronically submit to OSHA Form 300A in 2017 and all of their injury and illness recordkeeping forms (Forms 300, 300A and 301 or equivalent) in subsequent years.

Dealers should note that light-duty dealerships with fewer than 250 employees at a “single establishment” are required to record workplace injuries and illnesses, but are not required to submit Form 300A to OSHA.

These forms must be available to OSHA and state labor inspectors upon request.

Electronic filing must be done using OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application available on OSHA’s website. A North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) number is required for filing. Commercial-duty dealerships are NAICS 42311; light-duty dealerships are NAICS 44111.
