US: OSHA Adopts Partial Rescission of its Electronic Reporting of Injury and Illness Rule

In the January 25, 2019 edition of the Federal Register, OSHA finalized its amendments to the recordkeeping and reporting regulations in 29 CFR 1904. The rule amends OSHA’s final rule from May 2016, which required electronic submission of OSHA forms. This amended rule removes the requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees to electronically submit OSHA Forms 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report). These establishments will still be required to submit OSHA Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses). This rule will also require covered employers to submit their Employer Identification Number (EIN) in conjunction with the electronically reported data. The rule becomes effective on February 25, 2019.
