OSHA to extend date for submitting injury and illness logs

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) intends to extend the initial date by which certain employers are required to electronically submit their injury and illness logs under the record-keeping rule issued in May 2016. This regulation requires certain employers to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A to OSHA electronically by July 1, 2017.

NRCA has testified before Congress outlining members' concerns with the record-keeping rule and requested the Trump administration review the regulation for possible delay, modification or repeal. Additionally, litigation challenging the legality of the regulation is pending.

OSHA has not yet announced the proposed extension date. For the most recent updates and additional information, visit OSHA's record-keeping pages by clicking here and here.
