Under the rule, the first electronic reports were due on July 1, 2017. OSHA's electronic reporting rule affects establishments that: Are already required to create and maintain OSHA injury and illness records and have 250 or more employees; Have between 20 and 249 employees and belong to a high risk industry; and Receive a specific request from OSHA to create, maintain and submit electronic records, even if they would otherwise be exempt from OSHA recordkeeping requirements. The electronic reporting rule applies to establishments, not employers. An employer may have several worksites or establishments. In these situations, some establishments may be affected while others are not.
