OSHA launches program to target high injury, illness rates

Agency will inspect employers it believes should have submitted 300A data for 2016

Posted October 19, 2018

OSHA has launched a site-specific targeting (SST) program using employer-submitted Form 300A Summary data for calendar year (CY) 2016. The program will target high injury rate establishments in manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors for inspection. The Agency has not identified what it considers to be a high injury rate.

OSHA will perform programmed inspections of employers it believes should have provided Form 300A data, but did not, for the CY 2016 injury and illness data collection.

For CY 2016, OSHA required certain employers to electronically submit Form 300A data by December 15, 2017. The CY 2017 deadline was July 1, 2018; however, employers who missed this deadline may still submit the information.

The SST program is OSHA’s main site-specific programmed inspection initiative for non-construction workplaces that have 20 or more employees.
