The Occupational Safety and Health Administration aims to modernize injury data collection to better inform workers, employers and the public about workplace hazards through a final injury- and illness-reporting rule. Effective August 10 with phased implementation carrying into 2017, it requires a) all establishments with 250 or more employees in industries covered by the recordkeeping regulation to electronically submit OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301 injury and illness information; and, b) establishments with 20-249 employees in certain industries to electronically submit Form 300A information.
