Yesterday, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration ("OSHA") released a final rule revising its Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses regulations. The revisions require certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data to OSHA and also make several changes to encourage employees to report injuries and illnesses. In addition, the Agency reiterated previous statements that it intends to post the recordkeeping data it collects on its website. In a press release regarding the new rule, David Michaels, the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupation Safety and Health, explained that "high injury rates are a sign of poor management….Our new reporting requirements will 'nudge' employers to prevent worker injuries and illnesses to demonstrate…that they operate safe and well-managed facilities."
