Employers shouldn't rush to submit OSHA injury reports
Employers shouldn't hurry to file their annual injury and illness summaries electronically with OSHA even though the agency began accepting reports Aug. 1, employer-side attorneys are recommending. Employers can delay filing until the Dec. 1 deadline, while the Trump administration reviews the Obama-era Labor Department rule and court cases challenge the regulation. This is the first time hundreds of thousands of employers are required to report electronically and many have raised concerns about whether the data would be publicly available. They fear that the public data would be used by unions and others to critique their safety performance and reveal information on the number of workers employed.
