OSHA has issued another delay for the employer submittal deadline regarding electronic data of the 2016 Form 300A. The new deadline is now December 15, 2017.
The requirement for the electronic submittal of the injury and illness records became effective on January 1, 2017 and requires employers covered under the rule to submit information from their completed 2016 Form 300A.
According to OSHA the following State Plan states have not yet adopted the requirement to submit injury and illness reports electronically: California, Maryland, Minnesota, South Carolina, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming
The previous delay set the deadline for employers as December 1, 2017. This latest delay (until December 15th) now allows employers some extra time to become familiar with the electronic reporting system. In addition, the delay was also in response to an alert from the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US–CERT) that indicated a potential compromise of user information which is currently being addressed.
