Most Employers Must Electronically Report Injury and Illness Data by December 15, 2017

Lilly Hummel

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a notice extending the  date by which most employers must electronically report injury and illness data through the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) to December 15, 2017. This rule requires certain employers electronically submit injury and illness information they are already required to keep under existing OSHA regulations. However, the notice lists 11 states that do not yet require their employers to submit these reports electronically. OSHA is currently reviewing the other provisions of its final rule to Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses, and intends to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking to reconsider, revise, or remove portions of that rule in 2018.
