OSHA Proposes to Delay Compliance Date for Electronic Reporting Rule

On June 27, 2017, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)  proposed a delay in the electronic reporting compliance date of the Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses rule from July 1, 2017, to December 1, 2017.

The agency published the final rule on May 12, 2016, and has determined that a further delay of the compliance date is appropriate for the purpose of additional review into questions of law and policy.

OSHA invites the public to comment on the proposed deadline extension. Comments may be submitted electronically at, the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal, or by mail or facsimile. See the Federal Register notice for details. The deadline for submitting comments is July 13, 2017.
