The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will release a web-based injury and illness reporting form on Aug. 1.
Employers will be able to use the Injury Tracking Application to submit information from their completed 2016 OSHA Form 300As. This will be mandated by the agency's new electronic recordkeeping requirements later this year.
OSHA recently pushed back implementation of the new provision from July 1 to Dec. 1. Employers will be able to use the application starting Aug. 1, giving them time to incorporate it into their practices before the new requirement takes effect.
