In an email sent today to stakeholders, OSHA announced that it intends to delay the July 1, 2017 compliance date for the electronic submission of the 2016 Form 300A.  As part of the final rule, Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses issued in May 2016, employers  had a phased in compliance deadline for the electronic submission of recordkeeping forms. For 2017, employers with establishments with 250 or more employees and establishments with less than 250 employees but 20 or more in certain high-risk industries were required to electronically submit their 2016 Form 300A by July 1, 2017.  However, the secure website that OSHA intended to use for the submission of these recordkeeping forms has not been made available.

In the email, OSHA stated,

OSHA intends to extend the initial date by which certain employers are required to electronically submit their injury and illness logs.  The Recordkeeping Rule currently requires certain employers to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A to OSHA electronically by July 1, 2017.  The proposal will extend this to a later date.  Currently, we do not have any additional information about the timeline for this.  We will let you know as additional information, including a proposed extension date, is available.

Stay tuned for additional information as it becomes available.
