Burr Alert: OSHA Issues New Workplace Injury Reporting Rule

Articles / Publications

On May 11, 2016, OSHA finalized its long anticipated rule requiring employers with 250 or more employees to electronically submit injury and illness information from OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and 301 for publication by OSHA.

Further, establishments with 20-249 employees in specified hazardous industries must electronically submit information kept on OSHA Form 300A only. The final rule also requires employers to inform employees of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation, and clarifies that an employer must have a reasonable procedure for reporting work-related injuries that does not discourage employees from reporting. Importantly, these new requirements do not add to or change an employer's obligation to complete and retain injury and illness records under the recordkeeping and reporting OSHA regulation. The new reporting requirements will become effective in January 2017.
