OSHA delays deadline for electronic submission of injury and illness data

Lilly Hummel

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is extending a deadline for employers to electronically submit workplace injury and illness data under a final rule that was published in May 2016. The former compliance deadline related to Form 300A had been July 1, 2017. OSHA has not set a new deadline. Employers that have 250 or more employees are required to electronically submit to OSHA the injury and illness information that they already collect on OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301 every year. Some businesses, including assisted living communities and nursing centers, with 20 to 249 employees are required to electronically submit information from Form 300A only.
