Comprehensive Reporting of Workplace Injuries

In May 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a final rule entitled “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses,” 81 Fed. Reg. 29624 (revised at 81 Fed. Reg. 31854). The rule requires, for the first time, that large employers report to OSHA certain recorded workplace injuries and illnesses on a quarterly basis and that OSHA would release some of this information to the public. In July 2016, several industry groups filed suit to challenge the rule and in June 2017, proposed extending the deadline for employers to submit injury information from July 1 to December 1, 2017.
