OSHA Electronic Reporting

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a final rule May 12, 2016 that requires many employers to electronically submit information about their workplace injuries and illnesses to the government that will be posted on OSHA's public website.

When the new rule takes effect Jan. 1, 2017, workplaces that are currently required to keep OSHA records must electronically submit certain information. That includes those with 250 and more employees and those with 20-249 employees classified as belonging to one of 67 high hazard industries.

If you're one of the estimated 466,000 employers affected by this rule, you have until July 1, 2017 to electronically submit information on injuries and illnesses reported during year 2016.
