New OSHA Rule Delayed Until December 1

OSHA delayed the enforcement of a new rule which went into effect on August 10, 2016 until Nov. 1, 2016, in order to provide employers with more time to comply. Guess what? It’s been delayed a second time until December 1st!

Under OSHA 81 Fed. Reg. 29624, employers are required to inform workers of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation. Specifically, this new rule:

• Prohibits mandatory post-accident drug testing. OSHA claims these tests discriminate against employees and make them less likely to report injuries and illnesses.

• Prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who report an injury or illness.

• Requires employers to inform employees about this new anti-retaliation rule by posting an OSHA workplace poster or in writing with a signed acknowledgment form.

• Requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data, already recorded on their on-site OSHA Injury and Illness forms. Establishments with 20-249 employees in certain high-risk industries must submit information from their 2016 Form 300A by July 1, 2017, and their 2017 Form 300A by July 1, 2018. Establishments with 250 or more employees in industries covered by the record-keeping regulation must submit information from their 2016 Form 300A by July 1, 2017.

Call CEA to assist you with your handbook language and/or help you create a policy.
