OSHA to delay electronic reporting

OSHA says it will propose a delay to the July 1, 2017 deadline for certain employers to electronically file injury and illness data, reports James L Curtis in a blog for law form Seyfarth Shaw.

“Under OSHA’s revised recordkeeping rules certain employers are required to electronically file injury and illness data with OSHA,” Curtiss says.

“As we noted previously in our blog, the rule became effective in January, 2017 and required employers to electronically file the information by July 1, 2017. However, for months the regulated community has been asking how it is expected to accomplish this electronic filing when OSHA has failed to set up a website capable of accepting the submissions.

“OSHA has now posted a notice on its website acknowledging that “OSHA is not accepting electronic submission 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.”

“It is unclear how long of a delay OSHA will seek and whether other modifications will be made that would impact the new anti-retaliation provisions. We will keep readers posted,” Curtiss says.
