OSHA will extend initial date for electronically submitting injury and illness logs
NRCA has learned the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) intends to extend the initial date by which
certain employers are required to electronically submit their injury and illness logs under the recordkeeping rule
issued in May 2016. This regulation requires certain employers to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form
300A to OSHA electronically by July 1, 2017. NRCA understands that OSHA intends to extend this to a later date;
additional information is not yet available, including a proposed extension date.

NRCA has testified before Congress outlining member concerns with the recordkeeping rule and requested that the Trump
administration review the regulation for possible delay, modification or repeal. Additionally, litigation challenging
the legality of the regulation in court is pending.
