Regulatory Activity

January 25, 2019 (Final Rule) - To protect worker privacy, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) amended the recordkeeping regulation by rescinding the requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees to electronically submit information from OSHA Forms 300 and 301.

In addition to reporting required after severe injuries, establishments will continue to submit information from their Form 300A.
