December 11, 2017 | Strategic Insights for Ambulatory Care
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 Physician Practice E-News, July 10, 2017: OSHA Proposes Delay to Rule Requiring Electronic Submission of Injury and Illness Data). 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.
