The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has extended the deadline for electronically reporting injury and illness through the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) to December 15, 2017. This extension is to ensure affected employers have additional time to become familiar with the new electronic reporting system.
The new date for compliance, December 15, 2017, is a two-week extension from the original date, December 1, 2017. This final ruling to Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness information that they are already required to keep under existing OSHA regulations.
