OMB receives OSHA recordkeeping rule change for review
OMB received the rule on Nov. 22; the review process typically takes about 90 days.
The rule would modernize the current reporting system by establishing the electronic collection of specific injury and illness data from employers on a timely basis, among other changes. Section 1904.41 of the Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illness Standard – which specifies the annual collection of OSHA’s injury and illness survey – is expected to be changed.
Additional details about the proposed rule change were not immediately available.
