Public Citizen opposes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) proposal to delay the deadline, from July 1 to December 1, 2017, for certain employers to submit injury and illness data electronically under its final rule entitled “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses”. The proposed postponement is unnecessary and will impede identification of workplace health and safety hazards.
