In January 2017, OSHA adopted its final rule requiring certain employers to electronically file OSHA 300A forms as of July 1, 2017. As of now, enforcement of that requirement has been delayed and employers do not have to report injuries electronically.
OSHA issued the following statement: “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.”
CoreHR Team will continue to monitor OSHA’s website and we will post any updates.
