OSHA’s Tracking Workplace Illness and Injury Taking Effect in 2024
The U.S. Department of Labor revealed a final rule taking effect on January 1, 2024, that will require certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness information to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Establishments with 100 or more employees in certain high-hazard industries, such as food production, manufacturing, transportation, etc., must electronically submit information from their Form 300-Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses and from Form 301-Injury and Illness Incident Report to OSHA once a year. Employers must include their legal company name as part of this annual submission. The submission of the information from these forms is in addition to the submission of Form 300A-Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses.
