On July 30th, 2018, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a proposed rule to eliminate the electronic reporting requirements for data from OSHA Forms 300 and 301. OSHA initially established these requirements - which apply to establishments with 250 or more employees - in a final rule issued in 2016. 

Covered establishments must still submit electronic reports on data from Form 300A through the agency's Injury Tracking Application (ITA). The next deadline for this reporting is March 2nd, 2019. The proposed rule would require covered establishments to submit their federal employer identification numbers (EINs) along with their Form 300A information.
