OSHA's New Rule on Tracking and Reporting Workplace Injuries And Illnesses

07/06/2016

On May 11 the Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a final rule on tracking and reporting workplace injuries and illnesses. The rule is slated to go into effect in two phases, with the first phase taking effect August 10, and the second on January 1, 2017. The new rule requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness information maintained on OSHA logs to a publicly accessible website. It also governs how employers are to ensure that employees report tracked workplace injuries or illnesses.
