The new reporting deadline is December 1, 2017. OSHA has postponed the reporting date to allow more time for employers to become acclimated with the new electronic reporting system as well as give OSHA additional time to review the requirements before they are implemented. OSHA anticipates the electronic reporting system will be available by August 1st. OSHA’s electronic reporting webpage can be reached at: https://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/finalrule/index.html
All facilities with more than 250 employees will be required to provide the OSHA Form 300A data in this manner along with all facilities in a “high-hazard” industry category with 20 or more employees. “High-hazard” industries include all manufacturing NAICS codes in the rule’s present form.
