Minnesota operates an OSHA-approved State Plan covering most private sector workers and all state and local government workers. State Plans are monitored by OSHA and may develop their own safety and health standards, as long as they are at least as effective as federal OSHA standards. Effective December 18, 2023, Minnesota OSHA has adopted two key federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations related to electronic reporting and tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses which require:
Covered employers in a designated NAICS code must register with OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA) and electronically submit injury and illness data by March 2, 2024.
For additional information on these requirements, visit OSHA’s ITA launch page for guidance on submitting annual work-related injury and illness data through the ITA, including answers to frequently asked questions, or contact the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry.
