Injury & Illness Reporting and Recording Requirements. Action Required

Recent events and numerous calls, as well as an impending deadline have prompted MITA to reissue this important information.

In 2015, MIOSHA updated the Administrative Standard Part 11, Recording and Reporting of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, requiring employers to report work-related fatalities to MIOSHA within eight hours. Any in-patient hospitalization of one or more employees, or any amputation or loss of an eye as a result of a work-related incident, must be reported to MIOSHA within 24 hours.

As a reminder to MITA members, an injury/illness deadline is coming soon. On July 1, 2018 companies in Michigan are required to report injury and illness information for calendar year 2017. Members will need to submit that information through the Injury Tracking Application or ITA. Companies with 20-249 employees that are a part of certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses are also required to submit information electronically. Companies that have 250 or more employees must electronically submit information from their OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301. Further, beginning in 2019 and every year thereafter, information for the previous year must be submitted by March 2 of the current year.

Below is the link to the ITA website, along with the link to the OSHA document, to help you get started by creating your account.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Matt McClintick, MITA’s Director of Safety & Compliance, at, or call the MITA office at 517-347-8336.
