OSHA intends to delay electronic data reporting date

Stay tuned for updates

Posted May 18, 2017

OSHA has indicated that it will not accept electronic submissions of workplace injury and illness data by the July 1, 2017, deadline. The Agency’s website states: “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. Updates will be posted to this webpage when they are available.”

OSHA’s final rule to Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses requires certain employers that are already keeping injury and illness records to submit their workplace injury and illness data to OSHA. The Agency plans to make this information public, minus any personally identifiable information.

The rule is currently being contested in two federal courts, and OSHA may wait for the outcome of these cases before taking further action.
