Two More Weeks: OSHA Extends Compliance Date for Electronic Reporting Requirement of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses
December 1, 2017 | Aging Services Risk, Quality, & Safety Guidance
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has extended the date by which employers must electronically report injury and illness data until December 15, 2017, OSHA announced. This is a two-week extension from the previous extension (see Issues in Continuing Care Risk Management, July 14, 2017). OSHA's final rule will require certain employers to submit the work-related injury and illness information that they already collect to OSHA electronically through the agency's injury tracking application.
