OSHA Signals Intention to Delay Electronic Reporting - June 2017
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) electronic
reporting rule requires certain establishments to report information
electronically from their OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301. The rule also requires
OSHA to create a website that can be used to submit the required information.
Under the rule, the first reports are due by July 1, 2017.
However, on a recent update to its
recordkeeping webpage, OSHA indicated it will not be ready to receive
electronic workplace injury and illness reports by the established deadline. No
new reporting deadline has been adopted yet.
OSHA has not officially delayed the July 1, 2017, deadline,
but its website will not be ready to receive electronic reports from employers
by this time.
Affected establishments should continue to record and report
workplace injuries as required by law and should monitor these developments to
learn whether a new reporting deadline will be adopted.
