OSHA Extends Comment Period of Proposed Recordkeeping Changes (TRN Update)


From Cliff Gerbick, CSP (The Reserves Network Director of Safety)

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has extended the open comment period for the proposed changes to the current Recordkeeping Standard, 29 CFR 1904.  The extension was in response to a request from the National Association of Home Builders.

Under current regulations, most employers are required to maintain the OSHA 300 Log.  While employers must maintain the log, they are not required to submit information from the log to OSHA or any other agency at years end unless specifically directed to by OSHA or another government agency, such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The proposed rule will require employees to electronically submit OSHA 300 data to OSHA on an annual basis. The period to comment on this proposed rule change has been extended until March 8, 2014.

Interested parties can submit their comments via mail, FAX or electronically through the following link: (www.regulations.gov)
