The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced a proposed rule March 28 that would remove one electronic reporting requirement while adding others for high-hazard industries.
The proposed rule would:
- Remove the current requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees not in a designated industry to electronically submit information from their Form 300A to OSHA annually.
- Require establishments with 100 or more employees in certain high-hazard industries to electronically submit information from their forms 300, 301 and 300A to OSHA once a year.
- Update the classification system used to determine the industries covered by the electronic submission requirement.
- Require establishments to include their company name when making electronic submissions to OSHA.
- Establishments with 20 or more employees in certain high-hazard industries would continue to be required to electronically submit information from their Form 300A annual summary to OSHA yearly.
