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

In 2016, OSHA finalized a rule which, among other things, required certain establishments to electronically submit certain case-specific injury and illness information to OSHA each year (81 FR 29624 (May 12, 2016)). Approximately, three years later, the agency rescinded the requirements to submit the case-specific information (84 FR 380 (January 25, 2019)). On March 30, 2022, OSHA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which would amend its occupational injury and illness recordkeeping regulation to again require certain employers to annually electronically submit injury and illness information (87 FR 18528). Specifically, OSHA proposed to amend its regulation to require establishments with 100 or more employees in certain designated industries to electronically submit information from their OSHA Forms 300, 301, and 300A to OSHA once a year. Under the proposal, establishments with 20 or more employees in certain industries would continue to be required to electronically submit information from their OSHA Form 300A annual summary to OSHA once a year. OSHA also proposed to update the classification system used to determine the list of industries covered by the electronic submission requirement. Finally, OSHA proposed to remove the current requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees, not in a designated industry, to electronically submit information from their Form 300A to OSHA on an annual basis.
