OSHA Delays Injury and Illness Log Submission Deadline

On May 17, 2017, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced its intention to delay the July 1, 2017 deadline for electronic submission of injury and illness logs. The delay is due to unavailability of the secure website that OSHA intended to use for the submission of these recordkeeping forms. The announcement was posted on OSHA’s website and e-mailed to certain stakeholders.

As part of the final rule, Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses issued in May 2016, employers had a phased-in compliance deadline for the electronic submission of Form 300A. For 2017, employers with establishments with 250 or more employees and establishments with less than 250 but with 20 or more employees in certain high-risk industries were required to electronically submit their 2016 Form 300A by July 1, 2017.
