The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) announced that it intends to extend the July 1, 2017, deadline for employers to electronically submit their injury and illness records. The July deadline required certain employers to electronically submit their 2016 300A injury and illness logs. Because OSHA has yet to publish a website for submission of these forms, this proposed extension is not a surprise. No date for submission has been announced.
As background, as part of the final Workplace In jury Rule issued in May 2016, employers had phased-in compliance deadlines for the electronic submission of recordkeeping forms. For 2017, employers with establishments with 250 or more employees, and establishments with less than 250 employees but 20 or more in certain industries, were required to electronically submit their 2016 Form 300A by July 1, 2017.
We will post an update when OSHA sets a new deadline.
