In regulatory news:

To allow affected employers additional time to become familiar with a new electronic reporting system launched on August 1st, 2017, OSHA has extended the date by which employers must electronically report injury and illness data through the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) to December 15th, 2017. OSHA’s final rule to Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses sets December 15th, 2017, as the date for compliance (a two-week extension from the December 1st, 2017, compliance date in the proposed rule). The rule requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness information they are already required to keep under existing OSHA regulations.
