OSHA Proposes to Delay Compliance Date for Electronic Reporting Rule
On June 28, 2017, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed a four-month delay in the compliance date of its electronic reporting rule, formally called “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses.” The compliance date would be extended from July 1, 2017, to Dec. 1, 2017 and would allow the agency an opportunity to further review and consider its final rule that was published on May 12, 2016. The rule requires certain employers to submit their employee injury and illness logs to OSHA electronically.
