OSHA has extended until June 30th the deadline to comment on a proposed rule that would revise injury and illness recordkeeping rules.

Currently, the agency requires electronic submissions of Form 300A – a yearly summary of injury and illnesses data – for establishments with 250 or more employees and those with 20-249 employees in certain high-hazard industries.

The proposal would change the regulation to require establishments with 100-plus employees in those high-hazard industries to submit injury and illness data from the more detailed Forms 300 and 301 and Form 300A each year. Establishments with 20 or more employees in certain high-hazard industries would have to submit data only from Form 300A.

OSHA proposes ending the electronic reporting requirement for establishments with 250-plus employees that aren’t on the list of high-hazard industries. Additionally, the agency is seeking to update its classification system to determine which industries are covered under its electronic reporting requirements and require establishments to include a company name when submitting data to the agency.
