Earlier this month, OSHA finalized a recordkeeping and reporting rule that requires employers with 250 or more employees (or smaller employers in designated industries) to electronically submit information about workplace injuries and illnesses to OSHA. OSHA will post some of the data to its website for public view. OSHA’s goal is to improve employee safety. The rule, which takes effect on January 1, 2017, also includes anti-retaliation provisions that protect the rights of workers who report workplace injuries and illnesses. If you don’t want to read the entire 273-page rule, you can review OSHA’s summary webpage for further guidance.
