OSHA announces filing extension for recordkeeping rule under new electronic reporting system

Employers will now have an additional two weeks to file electronic illness and injury forms under the OSHA recordkeeping rule. On November 22, 2017, OSHA extended the deadline for submitting electronic illness and injury reports from December 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017.

OSHA stated in a news release that the extension will “allow affected employers additional time to become familiar with a new electronic reporting system launched on August 1, 2017.” The release also notes that OSHA is “currently reviewing the other provisions of its final rule to Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses, and intends to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking to reconsider, revise, or remove portions of that rule in 2018.”
