OSHA has decided 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 on Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses requires select 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, while protecting personal injury information. The rule is being contested in two federal courts, and OSHA will likely wait for the outcome of these cases before taking further action.
