OSHA Isn’t Ready for Electronic Reporting

A recent update to their recordkeeping page indicates OSHA isn’t ready for electronic reporting which was due to begin 7/1/17.  OSHA has not officially delayed the deadline, but its website will not be ready to receive electronic reports from employers by this time.

Remember, 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. The rule also requires OSHA to create a website that can be used to submit the required information. Under the rule, the first reports are due by July 1, 2017.

RULE HIGHLIGHTS

  • The rule requires OSHA to create and provide a secure website to transmit electronic information.
  • Under the rule, OSHA will publicize the information received from the electronic reports.
  • The final rule has met significant opposition and its validity is currently being challenged in federal court.

The Flanders Group will post updates as soon as they are available.  If you have questions, please contact Kerry Steenburgh at 800-462-6435 Ext. 234 or ksteenburgh@flandersgroup.com.
