The Rule: Rescinds the 2016 preamble language that limited employers’ ability to drug test post-incident and created barriers to safety incentive programs, and makes explicitly clear that there is no ban on either.
- Any language from the 2016 rule that suggested there is a limit on incentive programs or drug testingis overridden by this new rule.
The final rule eliminates the need for manufacturers to submit OSHA.
The final rule also eliminates the need for manufacturers to submit OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and OSHA Form 301(Injury and Illness Injury Report) to OSHA every year.
- Employers must still submit Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and, the form will now also include collection of Employer Identification Numbers.
- Employers are still required to maintain Forms 300 and 301 on-site and will be required from OSHA on an as-needed basis during inspections and enforcement actions.
Note: Form 300A data for calendar year 2018 is due March 2, 2019. For more information on submission, click here.
