Electronic Reporting Recordkeeping Requirements - MOSH Training and Education
Attention all Maryland employers!
The State of Maryland has not yet adopted OSHA’s new electronic reporting requirement found in 29 CFR, Part 1904 of the OSHA Recordkeeping Regulation. It is likely, however, that Maryland will be adopting this provision sometime before the end of 2019.
While the adoption of electronic reporting in our State remains pending, Maryland employers will not be cited or fined for noncompliance though it must be noted that the U.S. Department of Labor encourages all employers covered under this requirement to report their OSHA 300A log data through OSHA's online injury and illness tracking application. (Please note under the final rule employers are not required to submit other OSHA forms; i.e., 300 logs and 301 incident reports.)
Updates to Maryland’s adoption process will appear on this website. Also, please be aware that the new reporting requirement is completely independent of, and has no bearing on, the annual injury and illness reporting requirements to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
