On April 30, 2018 Federal OSHA posted a trade release clarifying that regulations pertaining to State Plans require all affected employers to submit injury and illness data in the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) online portal, even if the employer is covered by a State Plan that has not completed adoption of their own state rule. This action has been taken to correct an error that was previously made with regard to implementing the “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses” final rule.

In response to this notification, Cal/OSHA has provided updated information regarding Log 300 Reporting and advising employers to comply with OSHA’s directive.

California employers must provide Form 300A data electronically for calendar year 2017 by July 1, 2018.

If you rely on your TPA or incident tracking software to compile your data, we suggest you work with your provider to obtain the data in a format accepted by the ITA. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact the Loss Prevention Department.

One of the bills being tracked by the EIA Legislative Committee is AB 2334, the state legislatures’ efforts to enact a similar program for the State of California.
