OSHA Delays Electronic Reporting to December 31, 2017

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) electronic reporting rule requires certain establishments to report information electronically from their OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301. Under the rule, the first electronic reports were due on July 1, 2017.

However, today, OSHA announced they officially delayed the first electronic reporting deadline to midnight on December 31, 2017. OSHA will not take enforcement action against those employers who submit their reports after the December 15, 2017, deadline but before the December 31, 2017, final entry date. Starting January 1, 2018, the ITA will no longer accept the 2016 data.

This requirement applies to establishments with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records and establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in certain industries (including construction) with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses.
