OSHA has just announced that it will not enforce its new injury and illness reporting rule until the end of the year. The deadline had been delayed twice and went into effect on December 15th. However, the agency says it will give employers until December 31 to file without taking action. However, OSHA stresses that no 2016 forms will be accepted after January 1st.
What is behind the delay? It may be that OSHA is looking at the reports filed so far and realized that industry is way behind.
