Cal OSHA emergency rule to require e-reporting

Employers would have to submit by the end of this year for 2017 data

Posted October 22, 2018

Cal OSHA has proposed emergency regulatory amendments that would require designated employers in California to electronically submit certain occupational injury and illness information to federal OSHA. The first submission would be due by December 31, 2018.

Cal OSHA says that as federal OSHA has made clear it intends to enforce its Form 300A electronic reporting requirement on employers in State Plan states, California must adopt standards that are “substantially similar” to the corresponding federal requirements.
