OSHA proposes significant change in industry reporting requirements

Some previously exempt industries may now have to keep OSHA records

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is proposing changes to the industries it requires to report workplace injuries and illnesses. For some industries, OSHA requires that employers provide the administration with appropriate documentation after workplace incidents that result in injury or illness. Companies subject to the rule must keep OSHA 300 logs, file OSHA 301 incident reports and complete an OSHA 300A annual summary report each year.

The rule was originally put in place in 1987, and the list of industries hadn’t been updated since. OSHA has now revamped its list—adding some industries to the list of those required to keep records and removing some industries that were previously required to keep records.

The proposed rules are currently open for comment until Sept. 20. See the new industry additions and exemptions, and read more about OSHA’s new rule on Jackson Lewis.
