Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses: Proposed Delay of Compliance Date
Document Number: 2017-13550
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-28
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
On May 12, 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a rule entitled ``Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses'' with an effective date of January 1, 2017 for the final rule's electronic reporting requirements. The final rule sets an initial deadline of July 1, 2017, as the date by which certain employers are required to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A to OSHA electronically. This action proposes to extend the initial submission deadline for 2016 Form 300A data to December 1, 2017, to provide the new administration an opportunity to review the new electronic reporting requirements prior to their implementation and allow affected entities sufficient time to familiarize themselves with the electronic reporting system, which will not be available until August 1. The proposed five-month delay would be effective on the date of publication of a final rule in the Federal Register. OSHA also intends to issue a separate proposal to reconsider, revise, or remove other provisions of the prior final rule. OSHA will seek comment on those provisions in that separate proposal. In this proposal, OSHA only seeks comment on the delay of the July 1, 2017 compliance date to December 1, 2017.
