The National Demolition Association (NDA) in the United States has issued an urgent reminder to the demolition industry regarding the submitting of injury and illness data.

The organisation said: “NDA would like to remind members that certain demolition contractors must electronically submit their OSHA Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) by March 2, 2024.

“This data must be submitted through OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application.”

According to OSHA regulations, demolition contractors with 20 or more employees at a single establishment are required to keep injury and illness records and must electronically submit their Form 300A data to OSHA.

The electronic reporting requirements are based on the size of the establishment, not the firm. An establishment is defined as a single physical location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed.

Establishments under federal OSHA jurisdiction should use the ITA Coverage Application to determine if they are required to electronically report their injury and illness information to OSHA.

Establishments under State Plan jurisdiction should consult with their State Plan to determine eligibility. Covered employers must submit Form 300A data even if they had zero recordable injury or illnesses in 2023.

The NDA added: “In addition to reporting requirements, contractors with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses at the worksite for five years.

“Each February through April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year in a noticeable place.”
