Recordkeeping and Reporting of Worker Injuries (OSHA 300 Log)

    OSHA’s new electronic reporting requirement does not apply to Washington employers.

    On Jan. 1, 2017, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) implemented a new requirement that certain employers must submit injury and illness data electronically using OSHA’s new Injury Tracking Application (ITA). Enforcement is set to begin Dec. 1, 2017.

    The requirement does not apply to Washington employers. That is because Washington State has not yet adopted the new electronic reporting requirement. If you are an employer in the state of Washington, you do not have to provide this information to OSHA until Washington adopts the same requirement in our state.

    Rulemaking activity is underway to adopt the electronic reporting requirement in Washington State in 2018.

    In the meantime, continue to keep your OSHA 300 Log as before.

    Rulemaking updates will be sent regularly. Select the "Safety Standards (rules) Updates" topic when you sign up to receive email updates.
