Injury and Illness Tracking Message

We would like to share an OSHA video and blog message from Assistant Secretary Dr. Michaels that explains more about OSHA’s recent final rule to improve tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses. The rule requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data that they are already required to record on their onsite OSHA Injury and Illness forms.  These employers must send their first reports to OSHA by July 1, 2017.  OSHA will launch a secure website in February 2017 that will provide employers with several options for submitting the data.  For more information on this rule, see OSHA’s website at: https://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/finalrule/index.html.
