Employers covered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) electronic record-keeping rule must submit their 2017 summary of work-related injuries and illnesses by July 1, 2018. Enablon, a Wolters Kluwer business, recently announced it has launched an API that makes the reporting process easier to manage, more efficient and more accurate.
OSHA launched its online portal Injury Tracking Application in 2017. Companies that have to submit their 2017 summary of injuries and illnesses (Form 300A) on this secure website have two options to do this: opt for manual or CSV file upload or automate the process with an Application Programming Interface (API).
Expanding its existing OSHA report generation functionalities, Enablon has created a direct electronic reporting submission for Form 300A. The out-of-the-box API, which is available in Enablon 8.6, helps customers manage the process of electronic reporting, with no need for customization by users.
Submitting the report with an API also increases the accuracy and reliability of the data, and reduces the time required to report. As customers log all injuries and illnesses in the Enablon platform as they occur, there is no need to further collate the data. With the API, the data upload is automatic and just needs a quick review before submitting. It reduces the time needed for report submission by 75%, compared to extracting and uploading CSV files.
