The Code requirement is not to put the 300 lb load over the entire area.  You just apply one 300 lb load at a time.  However, it should be applied at what will be the most critical places for moment and shear; there may be several critical locations..

But if you have machinery,  you should be looking for actual machinery weights.  You may have much that a 300 lb load coming from a support post.
