Many California businesses faced a last-minute push in 2018 to comply with an emergency regulation related to filing their 300A forms. But the scramble for compliance doesn’t end there.

Employers learned in late November that 300A forms covering the 2017 calendar year had to be submitted electronically to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) office by the end of December. They also learned that the 2018 versions must be sent in by March 2, 2019.

The good news for employers is that March 2 is also the annual deadline moving forward, which means Forms 300A covering 2019 will be due on March 2, 2020.

This regulation applies to:

  • All California employers with 250 employees or more at any point during the calendar year, or
  • California employers with 20 or more employees in more than 50 specific industries identified on page 8 of the regulation.

Use the Federal OSHA Injury Tracking Application to submit your Form 300A.
