This week, OSHA proposed to delay the initial deadline for electronic submission of 2016 300A data from July 1, 2017, to December 1, 2017.
This week, OSHA proposed to delay the initial deadline for electronic submission of 2016 300A data from July 1, 2017, to December 1, 2017. The data collection system was originally intended to launch in February 2017. However, the launch was postponed. OSHA is seeking comments on extending the deadline.
OSHA now expects to launch the data collection system by August 1, and the proposed due date of December 1 will allow OSHA to provide employers the same four-month window to electronically submit their 2016 Form 300A data. This delay will also to provide the new administration the opportunity to review the new electronic reporting requirements prior to their implementation and allow affected entities sufficient time to familiarize themselves with the electronic reporting system, which will not be available until August 1. OSHA has requested public comments, due by July 13, 2017, on its proposal to extend the submission deadline by five months to December 1, 2017.
