The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) last week issued formal notice of its intention to rescind an Obama-era rule on injury and illness reporting. The rule was implemented in 2016 and requires employers with 250 or more workers, and employers in especially dangerous occupations, to report detailed injury data including a trove of personal information to the government. Under the Trump administration, OSHA found that the rule compromised workers’ personal information and was overly burdensome to employers. The proposed rule, which was formally published in the Federal Register last Friday, will still have to go through the formal rule-making process before it becomes effective, a process which will take several months.
