OSHA's Electronic Reporting Rule & How to Submit
3 Ways to Meet the December 15, 2017 OSHA Deadline
In 2017, a new OSHA rule took effect requiring companies of certain sizes to submit their OSHA log information to OSHA on an annual basis. This is a substantial change for many companies as it will not only allow OSHA direct access to loss information, but also the general public.
The information will be published on OSHA’s website, much in the way inspection data is now. OSHA stated that collecting and releasing this information to the public will encourage employers to put more emphasis on their safety programs. The original date for submissions was July 1, 2017, but after delays getting the website live, the submission date was pushed back to December 1, 2017. In late November, it was pushed back once again to December 15, 2017.
