OSHA Increases Maximum Penalties

Posted on 24 January 2020 by CRadmin2

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has adjusted the maximum penalties companies face as per the annual inflation rate. The new maximum penalties are as follows:

  • Serious and Other than Serious penalties – $13,494 per violation
  • Failure to Abate – $13,494 per violation
  • Willful or repeated – $134, 937 per violation

States that operate under their own safety and health plans must meet these maximum penalties, but they could be higher.

In addition, OSHA wants to remind employers that they must post their 2019 Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (Form 300A) from February 1 to April 30, 2020. For further information about Injury and Illness Recordkeeping (Forms 300, 300A and 301), please visit the federal OSHA website.

OSHA Training Institute Education Centers are also available to help companies comply with federal regulations. Available courses are listed by the U.S. Department of Labor.

OSHA Requires EIN From Employers

Posted on 23 December 2019 by cradmin

As of January 2, 2020, OSHA requires all employers to electronically submit an employer identification number (EIN) from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) along with the report for fatality, injury and illness, Form 300A.

This requirement only pertains to employers with 250 or more employees, and some other businesses over the threshold may be exempt. For all the latest information on the Injury Tracking Application (ITA), please consult the federal OSHA website, and remember, your state may require different or additional information.

While the EIN requirement is new, OSHA also requires employers to submit a 6-digit NAICS code that reflects what the business does. The deadline for electronic reporting of OSHA Form 300A is March 2, 2020. Again, complete instructions are provided on the OSHA website via the link above.

OSHA provides a secure website for the electronic submission of Form 300A. Employers may either enter the data manually via the online form, or they may upload a CSV file to process multiple establishments. Employers using an application programming interface (API) will have the ability to transmit all required information through the Internet.
