OSHA intends to restore requirement to electronically submit Form 300, 301 information
Posted October 8, 2021
OSHA intends to issue a proposal to amend its recordkeeping regulation to restore the requirement to electronically submit information from the Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and Form 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report) for establishments with 250 or more employees which are required to routinely keep injury and illness records. As a first step, the agency has sent its electronic recordkeeping rule to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review.
Under the current regulation, these establishments are only required to electronically submit information from the OSHA Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses).
OMB generally takes 90 to 120 days to review. According to its Spring agenda, OSHA had hoped to issue the proposed rule by December 2021.
