OSHA electronic recordkeeping rule to take effect in 2024



Dive Brief:

  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration published Friday its final electronic recordkeeping rule requiring employers with 100 or more employees to submit information from the agency’s Forms 300, 300A and 301 once per year.
  • OSHA’s rule also updates its system for determining which industries are subject to the information submission requirement. In a departure from the proposed rule, OSHA has retained the requirement for employers with 250 or more employees to annually submit information from Form 300A. 
  • Per the rule, the agency will post data gathered via these submissions on a public website, with identifying information — such as employees’ names and contact information — removed. The final rule is effective Jan. 1, 2024.

Dive Insight:

The announcement represents OSHA’s second attempt at enhancing electronic record requirements, the first of which was proposed by President Barack Obama’s administration in 2016 but later rolled back by President Donald Trump’s administration.

This is a developing story.
