OSHA Eliminates Key Provision in Recordkeeping Rule

Companies with 250 or more employees will not be required to electronically submit information from OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and OSHA Form 301, under the new final rule recently issued by OSHA. OSHA cited worker privacy as the reason for the change. The final rule does not alter an employer’s duty to maintain OSHA Forms 300 and 301 on-site, and OSHA will continue to obtain these forms as needed through inspections and enforcement actions.

The agency said the rule will allow it to improve enforcement targeting and compliance assistance and “to focus its resources on initiatives that its past experience has shown to be useful—including continued use of information from severe injury reports that helps target areas of concern, and seeking to fully utilize a large volume of data from Form 300A.”

Another change: the agency is amending the recordkeeping regulation to require covered employers to electronically submit their Employer Identification Number with their information from Form 300A. The final rule’s requirement for employers to submit their EIN to OSHA electronically along with their information from OSHA Form 300A will make the data more useful for OSHA and BLS, and could reduce duplicative reporting burdens on employers in the future. OSHA has determined that this final rule will allow OSHA Collection of Calendar Year 2018 information from the OSHA Form 300A began on January 2, 2019. The deadline for electronic submissions is March 2, 2019.

Get the latest details on this change by attending one of our OSHA Standards Courses (OSHA #510, #511, or #5410) or by taking the OSHA #7845 OSHA Recordkeeping Seminar.
