OSHA Announces Delay for July 1 Reporting Deadline

(OSHA, Regulation) Permanent link

For clubs with 250 or more employees, the first reporting deadline for the updated OSHA reporting requirements was slated to be July 1, 2017. Under the final rule published in May 2016, businesses with 250 or more employees will now be required to electronically report injury and illness information to OSHA. This is the type of information that is currently maintained on OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301. 

On May 17, OSHA posted the following information to its website “OSHA is not accepting electronic submissions of injury and illness logs at this time, and intends to propose extending the July 1, 2017 date by which certain employers are required to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A electronically.” 

In related litigation, the rule is currently being challenged in two federal district court cases. Neither case is expected to be decided before the original July 1 deadline. 

Until there is a further announcement as to the new compliance date, clubs should continue to maintain their records and be prepared to comply with the new rule. 

Stay tuned for the latest information!
