ASA Will Comment on OSHA’s Recordkeeping Regulation Relating to Construction
On March 30, 2022, OSHA issued its proposed amendments to its recordkeeping regulation. The current regulation requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness information to OSHA. The most significant change is that covered establishments with 100 or more employees in certain high-hazard industries—including construction—are now going to be required to electronically submit information from their OSHA Forms 300, 301 and 300A to OSHA once a year (rather than just the 300A), and the data will be posted online by OSHA. In addition, the proposal will remove the current requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees not in a designated industry to electronically submit information from their Form 300A to OSHA annually and require establishments to include their company name when making electronic submissions to OSHA. ASA will plan to submit comments to the rule by May 31, 2022.
