OSHA delaying employer filing deadline

There’s good news for employers required to electronically file injury and illness data with OSHA: You had until Dec. 1, 2017, to comply.

The rule became effective Jan. 1, 2017, with an initial requirement that employers electronically file the information by July 1, 2017. However, given the agency’s inability as of May 2017 to accept electronic submissions of injury and illness logs, OSHA has now formally proposed extending the filing deadline until Dec. 1. It also appears that OSHA is reconsidering the entire rule, which it may even modify or revoke prior to the proposed Dec. 1 filing date.
