OSHA to Delay Injury and Illness e-Reporting for Employers

Posted on 5/19/2017 by Roger Marks

OSHA posted a message on its website on Wednesday, May 17, that reads:
 
“OSHA is not accepting electronic submissions of injury and illness logs at this time, and intends to propose extending the July 1, 2017 date by which certain employers are required to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A electronically.”


Electronic Reporting of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses

Click the link above for more information about what’s in that OSHA Final Rule. 

Almost immediately, the Final Rule was the subject of legal challenges from groups representing employers, including the National Association of Manufacturers.


Employer Anti-Retaliation Provisions in OSHA's Final Rule

In addition to new electronic reporting requirements, the Final Rule also included anti-retaliation provisions intended to protect employees from employer retribution for reporting workplace injuries or illnesses. The anti-retaliation provisions were also delayed (twice), but ultimately took effect in December 2016. Shortly before the new anti-retaliation provisions became mandatory, OSHA issued a guidance document to help employers comply with the new rules.
