OSHA Proposes Delay to New Injury and Illness E-Reporting Rule
OSHA’s rationale for extending the effective date of the electronic injury and illness reporting requirements is that an extension allows:
- Employers to get familiar with the new electronic reporting system—which will be available August 1; and
- The new administration to review the electronic reporting requirements before they take effect.
Finalized in May 2016, OSHA’s electronic injury and illness reporting rule requires certain employers to submit electronic injury and illness data logged throughout the year on OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and/or 301. Click the link above for more information about what’s in that OSHA Final Rule.
OSHA’s Electronic Injury and Illness Reporting Rule
The extension proposed today would apply to employers with 20 or more employees in certain industries who are required to submit OSHA 300A data electronically under the Final Rule.
What About OSHA Forms 300 and 301?
The Final Rule also requires larger employees—those with 250 or more employees—to submit injury and illness case characteristic data and incident report data from OSHA forms 300 and 301. The proposed deadline extension will not impact these new requirements.
In addition, the Final Rule added anti-retaliation provisions to protect employees from negative consequences from their employer for getting hurt or reporting and injury at work. These provisions were delayed twice before taking effect in December 2016. In October 2016, OSHA released a guidance document to help employers comply with the anti-retaliation portions of the Final Rule.

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.
Senior EHS Engineer
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.
