No Electronic Submission of OSHA Records for Now.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has announced that it is not accepting electronic submissions of injury and illness logs at this time.
In May 2016, OSHA issued a revised rule providing that employers with 250 or more employees would be required to submit electronically information from Forms 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses), 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report). In addition, employers with 20-249 employees in specifically-identified industries with historically high rates of workplace injuries and illnesses would be required to submit electronically information from Form 300A. The initial submissions under the revised rule were to have been submitted by July 1, 2017. OSHA has now stated that it intends to propose extending the July 1, 2017 date. OSHA will update employers on when such electronic reporting will be required.
