Creating an OSHA 300A CSV File Report
IndustrySafe’s OSHA 300A Create Report page has been updated so that you can comply with OSHA’s final ruling requiring the electronic submission of recordkeeping data.
This update allows you to easily generate and download a CSV file of OSHA 300A data for your applicable establishments. You can then upload your CSV file to OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA) site, once this site is made available by OSHA.
To generate a CSV file, go to Incidents > Regulatory Reports > OSHA 300a, and select “OSHA CSV” as the report’s output format.
You can choose to group your records by Facility, Business Group, Region, or Division. After selecting any desired filters, simply click the “Create Report” button to generate your CSV file.
If your organization’s CSV data does not meet OSHA’s validation criteria, an error message will display providing you with additional information about the issue.
You can click the “Ignore Error” button if you still wish to generate the report, and the download will start promptly.
OSHA extended the submission deadline to December 1, 2017. The Injury Tracking Application (ITA) that will allow safety professionals to submit their 300A data to OSHA will be available August 1, 2017. CSV files downloaded from IndustrySafe will be accepted by the ITA. However, if you open the file and then attempt to save it, Excel will default to saving the file as a Unicode text, which will not be processed by the ITA. Please be sure that if you open or edit any CSV files from IndustrySafe, you are saving them as Comma Separated Values.
