The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has recently announced a significant rule change that will impact how businesses track and report workplace injuries and illnesses. This update, set to take effect on January 1, 2024, is designed to improve transparency and accountability, but it also presents new challenges for businesses. Menotti Enterprise LLC is here to help your company navigate these changes smoothly and effectively.
Understanding the OSHA Rule Change:
The new rule mandates that certain employers electronically submit injury and illness information to OSHA, information they are already required to keep under existing recordkeeping regulations. This includes establishments with 100 or more employees in designated industries, which will now need to submit OSHA Forms 300 and 301 annually.
Moreover, establishments with 20 to 249 employees in certain industries will continue to submit their OSHA Form 300A annually. Larger establishments with 250 or more employees will also continue to submit their Form 300A data.
OSHA has updated the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes used to designate the industries required to submit their Form 300A data and added an appendix to designate industries required to submit Form 300 and Form 301 data.
This update comes on the heels of proposed amendments unveiled in March 2022. These amendments called for designated establishments in certain high-risk sectors to electronically provide details from their Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, along with their Injury and Illness Incident Report.
