OSHA Anti-Retaliation Enforcement Provision Delayed

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has decided to postpone the effective enforcement date for the anti-retaliation provisions in its new recordkeeping rule.

Originally slated to start Aug. 10, the provision would require employers to inform workers of their rights to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation, and to implement procedures for reporting injuries and illnesses that are reasonable and do not deter workers from reporting. The rule also prohibits employers from retaliating against workers for reporting injuries and illnesses.

OSHA says it granted the stay to allow additional time for more outreach to employers, and provide more educational materials and guidance. The new effective date is Nov. 1.
