OSHA Proposes Increased Obligations to Report Injury and Illness Data

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) issued a press release on November 7, 2013 announcing that it is proposing a rule that would increase the obligations of certain establishments to report injury and illness data.  The new rule will not implement any new record-keeping requirements, but rather will increase the obligations of certain employers to report injury and illness data that is already required to be kept under Title 29, Part 1904 of the Code of Federal Regulations (29 C.F.R. §1904).

 

Specifically, the proposed rule would require employers with 250 or more employees to electronically submit data collected from their OSHA 300 and OSHA 301 forms on a quarterly basis. These employers would also be required to submit the summary injury and illness data compiled in their OSHA 300A forms on an annual basis.  Employers in certain industries that are partially exempt from Part 1904 record-keeping obligations under 29 C.F.R. §1904.2 (establishments classified in a specific low hazard retail, service, finance, insurance or real estate industry listed in Appendix A to Subpart B) will not be subject to this new rule.
