Letter to OSHA: Proposed Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses Rule
September 27, 2018
The Office of Advocacy has filed a comment letter with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on OSHA’s Proposed Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses Rule. The proposed rule is a deregulatory action that would amend OSHA’s recordkeeping and reporting regulations by rescinding the requirement that employers with 250 or more employees electronically submit to OSHA the information from their OSHA 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Reports) forms. However, the rule would retain the requirement that these employers electronically submit the information from their OSHA 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) form and would require employers to include their Employer Identification Number (EIN) with their submission.
