OSHA has again extended the deadline for employers to electronically submit injury and illness data — this time to December 15, 2017.

The electronic reporting deadline was set for December 1 after being postponed multiple times, but the agency decided to implement another two-week delay to give affected employers additional time to become familiar with the new electronic reporting system launched on August 1, according to a U.S. Department of Labor statement issued on Wednesday.

OSHA is currently reviewing the other provisions of its final rule and intends to publish a notice of proposed rule-making to reconsider, revise or remove portions of that rule in 2018, according to the statement.
