Comment period for recordkeeping rule gets 2-day extension

Washington – OSHA has extended the comment period for its proposed rule on recordkeeping by two days to March 10.

The extension was made because the original deadline fell on a Saturday, the agency said in a Feb. 12 press release.

The proposed rule would require employers to submit injury and illness information electronically, and the agency would then make that information available to the public.
