OSHA Delays Effective Date for Enforcing Employees’ Rights to Report Workplace Injuries, Illnesses

August 12, 2016

The effective/enforcement date for two provisions in OSHA’s recently revised Recordkeeping Rule has been extended from August 10, 2016 to November 1, 2016.

The two provisions postponed address:

  • Employer requirements for “Employee Involvement,” and
  • “Prohibition Against Discrimination.”

The deadlines for submitting injury and illness reports remains the same.
