The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a new rule to improve tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses.

Beginning August 10, 2016, the rule requires employers to have a reasonable procedure for employees to promptly and accurately report work‐related injuries and illnesses. Beginning on January 1, 2017, covered employers will begin electronically submitting the injury and illness reporting forms to OSHA, and OSHA will publish the results on a website open to the public.
