DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AD40 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is amending its occupational injury and illness recordkeeping regulation (29 CFR 1904.41). Among other things, part 1904 requires covered employers to record each recordable employee injury and illness on an OSHA Form 300, which is the "Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses," or equivalent. In addition, employers must also prepare a supplementary OSHA Form 301 "Injury and Illness Incident Report" or equivalent that provides additional details about each case recorded on the OSHA Form 300, and, at the end of each year, employers are required to prepare a summary report of all injuries and illnesses on the OSHA Form 300A, which is the "Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses," and post the form in a visible location in the workplace.

Under 29 CFR 1904.41, certain employers are only currently required to electronically submit injury and illness information from their OSHA Forms 300A (the summary) annually. However, the information submitted is only in summary form, OSHA does not receive establishment-specific, case-specific, injury and illness data. This proposal would change that by amending OSHA’s recordkeeping regulation to require certain establishments to also electronically submit information from the OSHA Forms 300 and 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report) once a year. In addition, OSHA’s proposal would adjust which establishments are required to submit data from their OSHA Forms 300A and require establishments to include their company name when making their electronic submissions. The majority of these proposed amendments are similar to requirements contained in OSHA’s Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses final rule, 81 FR 29624 (May 12, 2016) which were removed by the Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses final rule, 84 FR 380 (January 25, 2019).
