OSHA Issues Proposal to Extend July 1 Deadline for Submitting Electronic Injury and Illness Records

Jun 28, 2017

According to the Department of Government and Public Affairs OSHA has issued a  proposal to extend July 1 deadline for submitting electronic injury and illness records.  They also announced intent to review controversial record-keeping rule covering drug testing.
On June 28, 2017, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) formally proposed a rule to extend the original deadline for contractors to electronically submit their 2016 injury and illness data (Form 300A) from July 1, 2017, to December 1, 2017. OSHA now expects to launch the electronic data collection system by August 1, 2017,  allowing contractors four months to familiarize themselves with the new system. AGC will submit comments—due July 13, 2017—in favor of the extension.
OSHA also announced its intension to issue a separate proposal to reconsider, revise, or remove other provisions of the controversial May 2016 injury and illness recordkeeping final rule. The provisions under future consideration could include the anti-retaliation provision that focuses on post-incident drug testing, disciplinary policies, and safety incentive programs. OSHA will seek comment on those provisions in that separate proposal and AGC will again detail its concerns, as it did with the head of OSHA last year.
