The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a proposed rule to delay the date by which certain employers are required to submit their completed 300A form electronically from July 1 to December 1, 2017.

The Injury Tracking Application or data collection system, which was originally scheduled to launch in February 2017, is expected to launch August 1, allowing employers a 4-month window to electronically submit their 300A forms for 2016 injury and illness data. According to OSHA, the delay will allow affected establishments to familiarize themselves with the electronic reporting system.
