OSHA issued a final rule in May 2016 to revise its Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses regulation. The final rule became effective on January 1, 2017, and requires employers in certain industries to electronically submit to OSHA injury and illness data that employers are already required to keep under existing OSHA regulations. These requirements do not change who must report; establishments affected by the rule already report work-related injuries and illnesses.
For more information on the rule and the frequency and content of these establishment-specific submissions, as well as how employers inform employees of reporting requirements, click here.
