Critics of OSHA recordkeeping rule air concerns at House hearing
from Safety + Health Magazine
Critics of OSHA's recently released recordkeeping rule, which would make worker injury and illness data public, voiced their concerns during a May 25 hearing convened by the House Workforce Protections Subcommittee. The rule, Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses, was published May 11. It states that establishments with 250 or more workers must electronically submit to OSHA – on an annual basis – information from their OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301. Establishments with 20 to 249 workers in certain high-hazard industries will have to submit information from their annual summary form, OSHA Form 300A. The agency will then make information available on its website in a searchable database.
