OSHA Recordkeeping Changes

In May of 2016, OSHA issued a final rule, “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses,” to revise its recording and reporting occupational injuries and illnesses regulation.

The final rule includes provisions that encourage workers to report work-related injuries or illnesses to their employers and prohibit employers from retaliating against workers for making those reports.

The final rule also requires employers in certain industries to electroincally submit to OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping data included on the 300A, 300, and 301 forms.

According to the rule, OSHA will provide a secure website for the electronic submission of recordkeeping information. OSHA intends to provide organizations with a file upload and interface to enable users of current OSHA recordkeeping software systems such as IndustrySafe to submit their data.

The final rule takes effect on January 1, 2017, and reporting requirements will be phased in over two years.

To learn more about this ruling and how IndustrySafe can help your organization with data submittal, please review our latest white paper on these recordkeeping changes.

For more information on electronic submission of incident data to OSHA, you can also register for our upcoming webinar, or contact us at sales@industrysafe.com.
