Senate Nullifies OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping Rule

Posted on 3/24/2017 by Roger Marks

This month, the US Senate passed a joint resolution to disapprove of OSHA’s Final Rule to make accurate recordkeeping of workplace injury and illness an “ongoing obligation.”

OSHA injury recordkeepingCongress exercises its authority under the Congressional Review Act to disapprove of the rule. The resolution now moves on the President’s desk to be signed. If and when it is signed, the rule will be rescinded and “shall have no force of effect.” The President has already expressed support for this measure.

This will effectively reinstate the six-month time limit for OSHA to cite employers for failure to record injuries or illnesses.

See the Joint Resolution 83 here. 

For information on the types of workplace injuries or illnesses must be recorded on an OSH 300 log, read OSHA Answers Form 300 Questions.
