By Nicole Rice, Policy Director, Government Relations

Capitol Update, Oct. 22, 2018

Cal/OSHA has announced it will issue emergency regulations to require the electronic submission of the Form 300A – the Annual Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. Manufacturers with 20 or more employees will be subject to this requirement. The action is necessary to bring California in compliance with federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements currently in effect. The federal effort to amend the Form 300 and 301 electronic submission requirement remains ongoing.

The comment period on the emergency regulation is expected to open in the next week. Interested parties will have five days to provide feedback. After which, the office has ten days to review the action and if it passes muster, it will take effect. Click here for more information.
