The U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Review Commission (OSHRC) is the Federal agency that adjudicates contested OSHA citations between employers and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).
On September 1, 2016 OSHRC announced the availability of “electronic filing and service of litigation documents” before the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. According to the agency’s press release “Modernizing the Agency’s procedures and bringing it into the 21st century has been a years-long process and Chair Attwood praised the much-anticipated development, which will greatly facilitate increased efficiency in case docketing and management both inside the Agency and for the parties who appear before it.”
Previously parties before OSHRC had to file by mail, fax or through electronic mail with the consent of both parties. The new “e-file” system will allows parties to efficiently file pleadings and access dockets in cases for which they are a party. Registration is through the OSHRC website.
