Reminder: OSHA Form 300A Due March 2, 2023

Many employers with more than 10 employees must submit a record of work-related illnesses and injuries. Certain low-risk employers are exempt.

The OSHA Injury Tracking Application (ITA) has changed its login procedure for accessing government applications.

All current and new account holders must connect their ITA account to a account with the same email address to access the application for the 2023 collection of Calendar Year 2022 Form 300A data.

If you need help with 2023 reporting requirements, OSHA provides Frequently Asked Questions and a Help Request Form. You may also contact one of our OSHCON consultants for help.
