If have concerns about OSHA’s new e-filing regulations, you’ll be pleased to hear OSHA’s extended the comment period and now you now have until March 10 to comment.

OSHA issued a proposed rule Nov. 7 that it called, “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses.” (Full proposal is here: If passed, it would require certain employers to file annual summaries of their illness and injury data. The government plans to “eventually” post those summaries online, according to an OSHA statement.

Covered under the proposed rule are companies with more than 250 employees, and which are already required to keep injury and illness records. The proposal is for those companies to file electronic summaries quarterly.

Companies with more than 20 employees in specifically identified industries with high injury and illness rates would have to file an annual electronic summary.
