Topic: OSHA’s New Rule to Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries & Illnesses
OSHA’s final rule asserts it will modernize injury data collection to better inform workers, employers, the public, and OSHA about workplace hazards.
Under the new rule, all establishments with 250 or more employees in industries covered by the recordkeeping regulation must electronically submit to OSHA injury and illness information from the OSHA 300 Log, 300A Summary, and 301 Incident Report. Establishments with 20-249 employees in certain industries must electronically submit information from OSHA Form 300A Summary only. The new requirements take effect August 10, 2016, with phased in data submissions beginning in 2017.
Electronic submission of establishment-specific injury and illness data will enable OSHA to use its enforcement and compliance assistance resources more efficiently. Analysis of the data will improve OSHA's ability to identify, target, and remove safety and health hazards, thereby preventing workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths.
