OSHA recently implemented its final rule on electronic reporting of injury and illnesses. Businesses in specific industries or with 250 or more employees are required to report their injuries and illnesses directly via OSHA’s electronic portal for 2017. To determine if your establishment’s industry is required to submit electronically, you can go to the OSHA website for more details. Please refer to the table below for filing deadlines and type of forms businesses need to complete.
