It’s Not Too Late to Complete OSHA Electronic Reporting

December 15, 2017, was the deadline for employers to electronically submit information from work-related injuries and illnesses under OSHA’s Electronic Reporting Rule. Nevertheless, OSHA announced on December 18, 2017, that it will continue accepting electronic submittals until midnight on December 31, 2017. Furthermore, OSHA stated that it will not take enforcement action against employers that missed the December 15, 2017, deadline, as long as such employers submit by December 31, 2017. For a discussion of the Electronic Reporting Rule’s applicability and requirements, see our earlier article, here.
