UPDATE: Emergency regulation approved, November 6, 2018.
Cal/OSHA has issued an emergency regulation that would require certain employers to electronically submit Form 300A—the summary of recordable work-related injuries and illnesses—for the 2017 calendar year to Federal OSHA by December 31, 2018.
If adopted, this emergency regulation applies to:
- California employers with 250 employees or more at any point during the calendar year, or
- California employers with 20-249 employees in any of the specific industries listed on page 8 of the proposed regulation.
Cal/OSHA submitted the emergency regulation to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) on October 25. Employers may submit comments on the proposed regulation by October 30. The OAL will then have until November 5 to review and adopt or deny the proposed regulation.
