OSHA delays injury, illness electronic reporting date

June 2, 2017
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is delaying the July 1, 2017, deadline by which certain dealerships must electronically file their 2016 employee workplace injury and illness records. 
Dealerships required to report electronically by filing From 300A or equivalent include: 
• Commercial truck dealerships with 20 to 249 employees at a single "establishment." "Establishment" is defined by OSHA as a single location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed.
• Light-duty and commercial truck dealerships with 250 or more employees at a single "establishment."
Note that light-duty dealerships with fewer than 250 employees at a single "establishment" are required to record workplace injuries and illnesses, but are not required to submit Form 300A to OSHA. 
Until a new deadline is announced, covered dealerships should not file any Form 300As. OSHA may be considering the possibility of doing away with the electronic reporting mandate altogether.
