As Of 2-1-20 … Cal/OSHA’s Form 300A Is Now Mandatory to California Employers

California employers should know that Cal/OSHA’s injury/illness reporting requirements have been revised starting on 2-1-20. Employers who meet the requirements for keeping of work-related injuries and illnesses records must post the OSHA Form 300A from February 1 to April 30 yearly. All medical treatment beyond first aid must be reported to OSHA. Employers must also document significant work-related injuries and illnesses diagnosed by a licensed healthcare professional.

March 2, 2020 is the deadline for filing OSHA Form 300A 2019 reports of injury and illness data. If you employ more than ten workers considered to be partially exempt, it also involves an OSHA Form 300A. Now required on all submissions is your Employer Identification Numbers (EIN). These reports include:

Work-related death and every work-related injury or
illness that involves loss of consciousness, restricted work
activity, or job transfer, days away from work, or
medical treatment beyond first aid.

 

New Cal/OSHA Rule Changes That Are Effective Now:
  • OSHA Form 300 requires the supervisor to document the injured employee’s name, job title, and case number.
  • Supervisors must describe the case by listing the date of injury or illness, location of occurrence, and the specific area of the body affected. The log  also asks for the outcome, including days away from work, job transfer, or other recordable cases.
  • Beyond each individual case, employers must also prepare a summary of all work-related injuries and illnesses (reported on Form 300A).
    • In this section, the number of cases, days away from work, and injury or illness are combined into a grand total.
    • The employer then lists their information and provides a signature for OSHA’s internal use.
  • Not to be overlooked, the last page of the report is OSHA’s Form 301 (employer’s form that describes the workplace injury or illness). Each injury or illness that is recorded on OSHA Form 300 or its equivalent must also be recorded on a Form 301 or its equivalent (*a form is considered equivalent if it contains all the information asked on Form 301).
  • Note that larger firms are also required to file online with U.S. Dept. of Labor.
