OSHA's Web-Based Application Assists Employers with Reporting Injury Data
In the article, "OSHA's Web-Based Application Assists Employers with Reporting Injury Data," featured in EHS Today, Partner Edwin Foulke Jr. gives his insight on OSHA's secretary of labor nomination and offers advice for those who are waiting to file their incident reports.
Foulke said he hears a new secretary of labor for OSHA will be nominated (and likely confirmed) in September, and the deadline for providing the 300A form isn't until Dec. 1. Foulke said he is suggesting to clients to wait a few months until the new OSHA administrator is in office and challenges to the publication of injury and illness data to OSHA's website have been settled before posting their injury and illness data.
"If the electronic posting component is dropped, what will OSHA do with that data?" Foulke wondered. "I'm telling clients to wait and see how things shake out."
