OSHA Proposes Change to Electronic Recordkeeping Rule

Posted by Greg Andress on Aug 31, 2018 8:00:00 AM

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is considering eliminating the requirement to report some injury and illness data electronically. For the past few years, an OSHA recordkeeping rule has required establishments covered by record-keeping regulations to submit certain reports to the federal government online.

Currently, certain companies with 20-249 employees are required to submit OSHA Form 300A each year. The OSHA Form 300A summary details workplace injuries and illnesses. In addition, larger establishments with 250 or more employees were supposed to begin electronically submitting data from OSHA Form 300 and 301. Those forms are illness and injury logs and incident reports.

However, in light of anticipated changes, OSHA announced it would not be accepting the additional submissions. A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was issued in July and proposed changes would eliminate the requirement to electronically submit OSHA Forms 300 and 301. Larger establishments would still be required to submit Form 300A electronically.
