OSHA’s Final Rule for High-hazard Industries Eff. 1/01/24

As you may know, The U.S. Department of Labor has announced a final rule that will require certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness information to the department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The final rule, linked here, which takes effect on January 1, 2024 – requires entities with 100 or more employees in certain designated high-hazard industries to electronically submit information from their Form 300-Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, and Form 301-Injury and Illness Incident Report to OSHA once a year. These submissions are in addition to Form 300A-Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses.

This will allow you to download completed CSV files that can be electronically submitted to OSHA as part of their reporting process, which will take place from January 2 to March 2, 2024.
