Deadline for OSHA Electronic Reporting Rule Delayed Until December 15, 2017

OSHA has delayed the December 1, 2017, deadline for the Electronic Reporting Rule until December 15, 2017.  This rule requires a wide range of establishments to electronically submit injury and illness information from their OSHA Forms 300A.  The deadline extension was announced via a November 24, 2017, OSHA notice in the Federal Register.  According to this notice, the deadline extension is being implemented in response to OSHA having taken its website for electronic reporting (the Injury Tracking Application) offline for approximately two weeks in August 2017, due to security concerns.  For a discussion of the applicability and reporting requirements of the Electronic Reporting Rule, see our recent article.
