OSHA to begin collecting workplace injury and illness data in February 2017

Agency corrects recent statement about posting dates

Posted December 20, 2016

In a recent blog post, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels said that OSHA would begin making workplace injury and illness data public on its website as early as February 2017.

J. J. Keller followed up with OSHA, asking about what information would be posted in February. We noted that the first electronic data reporting deadline under the final rule to Improve Tracking of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses is set for July 1, 2017.

According to OSHA, Dr. Michaels meant to say that the Agency will begin collecting data in February 2017. Data will not be posted until after July 2017.
