OSHA announces implementation of recordkeeping regulation will be delayed

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced it will delay implementation of the recordkeeping regulation that will require employers to electronically submit injury and illness records to the agency, which was scheduled to begin July 1. NRCA opposed the regulation and testified before Congress last year to outline member concerns about possible misuse of such reports and potential adverse effects on employer safety programs. The regulation also provides for OSHA to post the reports online for public inspection. It is unclear how long the agency will delay the submission date, but NRCA is aware the new administration under Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta is reviewing the concerns of our members and other employers regarding the regulation. The regulation also faces two legal challenges that are currently on hold pending the administration's review and possible reopening of the regulation for modification or repeal.
