OSHA Proposes Delay in Compliance for Electronic Injury, Illness Reports

The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration is proposing a delay in the electronic reporting compliance date of the rule, Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses, from July 1, 2017, to December 1, 2017. The proposed delay will allow the agency time to further review and consider the rule.

The agency published the final rule on May 12, 2016, and has determined that a further delay of the compliance date is appropriate to allow for additional review into questions of law and policy. The delay will also provide employers the same four-month window for submitting data that the original rule would have provided.
