OSHA Injury and illness Electronic Reporting Rule Deadline Now Dec 15, 2017

OSHA has issued a final rule to delay the electronic reporting compliance date of the Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses rule from July 1, 2017 (actually it was December 1, 2017) to December 15, 2017. The reason given is to provide employers the same four month window for submitting data that the original rule would have provided.

Department of Labor OSHA Headquarters in Washington D.C.

The actual deadline had been December 1, 2017 to report 2016 OSHA 300A data for employers in manufacturing industries with 20-250 employees in most states. Employers in state plan states- California, Maryland, Minnesota, South Carolina, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming were not required to comply

Here is the link to today’s OSHA News Release.

According to the agency “OSHA is currently reviewing the other provisions of its final rule to Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses, and intends to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking to reconsider, revise, or remove portions of that rule in 2018.

We have been following this rule since we testified against it back in 2014.

We have posted on this from time to time

PMPA gave our members a step by step guide to how to report earlier this week.

The final rule will be published in the Federal Register on Friday, November 24, 2017. Here is the public inspection version

There is a new administration in the White House now, one that is waaaay more likely to do away with nonsense, which this rule is.

Has there been an effort to appeal to the President?
