RISK INSIGHT: OSHA Electronic Recordkeeping Website Suspended
The OSHA Recordkeeping website has been temporarily suspended due to an apparent security breach. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) launched its Injury Tracking Application website for Electronic Submission of Injury and Illness Records on August 1st, 2017. Not long after launch, OSHA received an alert that there was a potential compromise of user information for this injury tracking application.
As reported by Business Insurance in their article, Security breach shuts down OSHA electronic reporting application: “It is unclear whether this security breach will impact or further delay the compliance date for the submission of employer injury and illness information, which is Dec. 1, 2017,” according to a blog post by Tressi Cordaro, a shareholder with law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. based in Reston, Virginia.
