OSHA's Injury Tracking Application

OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application

After a slightly rocky start, OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA) is up and running, and businesses are now able to submit their injury and illness information electronically.

Remind Me What This Is About

A new regulation became effective January 1, 2017 that requires certain companies in certain industries to submit their work-related injury and illness information to OSHA. Here’s the timeline and what’s required:

Establishments with 250 or more employees:
  • In 2017 – submit information from your 2016 Form 300A by December 1, 2017.
  • In 2018 – submit information from your 2017 Forms 300, 300A, and 301 by July 1, 2018.
  • In 2019 and thereafter – submit information from Forms 300, 300A, and 301 by March 2nd every year.
Establishments with 20-249 employees in these high-hazard industries:
  • In 2017 – submit information from your 2016 Form 300A by December 1, 2017.
  • In 2018 – submit information from your 2017 Form 300A by July 1, 2018.
  • In 2019 and thereafter – submit information from your Form 300A by March 2nd every year.

Using the Injury Tracking Application

Go to https://www.osha.gov/injuryreporting/ and click on the “Launch ITA” button. You’ll need to create a new Account and then add a new Establishment. For companies with only one location, your establishment is the same as your company. Larger companies with many locations/facilities will need to add multiple Establishments.  When you click on your Establishment from the home page, you can manually enter your information. There’s also an option to upload data via a CSV file. The link above provides instructional materials that you can download if you need additional help.

If you’d prefer not to deal with the submission process yourself, OSHA does allow third-party providers to enter it for you, however you are still held responsible for all information entered. CCI is happy to help anyone in this capacity. Please contact us if you’d like us to submit your injury and illness information for you.

For anyone who will be submitting the information themselves, we strongly recommend that you create your account and familiarize yourself with the application prior to the December 1st deadline.
