OSHA wants you to post injury & illness data online — eventually

by on November 12, 2013 · 0 Comment POSTED IN: Workplace Safety Network

OSHA has proposed a rule to require employers to submit their records electronically to OSHA; however, the plan is for OSHA to “eventually” post the data online, according to an OSHA statement.

OSHA issued a proposed rule Nov. 7and asked for public comments through Feb. 6. Under the proposed rules, companies with more than 250 employees will have to file their reports quarterly; those between 20 and more and in certain industries to submit annually.

OSHA also noted that these reports should eventually be posted online – requiring in all likelihood statements to be issued with each report to assist in explaining and contextualizing the report. The public posting of data is not in the proposed rule, but was included in a statement released with the proposed rule.

Expect pushback on the plans to publicize injury & illness reports. We’ll keep you posted on the rule’s progress.
