On May 17, OSHA announced that employers will not have to electronically file injury and illness information by July 1, as the rule had stated. As of the date of this announcement, OSHA still had not opened the online portal for employers to file their injury data from the previous calendar year. OSHA did not offer a reason for the postponement and has delayed other standards this year including a standard on beryllium and a standard on silica dust which our Manager of Industrial Hygiene, Luis Pieretti, has written about.
