Electronic Reporting Rule Suspended

Published on 17-Jun-17
 
 
   The OSHA rule requiring electronic submissions of injury and illness data took effect January 1, and employers are obligated to send in their 300A summary data electronically by July 1. However, OSHA has not launched the website through which companies could submit the information. OSHA posted language with an existing fact sheet saying it “is not accepting electronic submissions of injury and illness logs at this time, and intends to propose extending the July 1, 2017 date bywhich certain employers are required to submit the information” to the agency. To
date, OSHA has not provided additional information on the time for this effort.  For more information, visit: www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/index.html
