A proposed OSHA rule would require employers of 250 or more employees to submit quarterly injury reports electronically. Some smaller employers in high-risk industries would have to file yearly reports.

The rule—to be finalized next year—wouldn’t add new recordkeeping requirements but would accelerate the injury-reporting process. According to an OSHA statement, the goal is to speed OSHA tracking of workplace injury trends, not beef up enforcement. Find details at OSHA's website.
