OSHA to Delay Rule Requiring Posting of Company Injury and Illness Data Online

OSHA announced on May 17th that employers will not have to file injury and illness information by July 1 with the Agency.  The rule requiring the filing, issued in May 2016, continues to be widely opposed by businesses since the regulation enables OSHA to publicly post injury and illness data from about 466,000 workplaces with 20 or more employees.  In addition to the posting of employer data on the OSHA website, employer groups also oppose other provisions of the rule including restrictions of incentive and drug testing programs.
