In May, OSHA announced its Electronic Recordkeeping Rule. The effective date of the rule was supposed to be August 10, 2016, but has been delayed. Why? Because on July 8, eight Texas employer groups, including the National Association of Manufacturers, filed suit against OSHA attempting to abolish the rule by requesting an injunction blocking its implementation or at least as the rule would apply to employer safety incentive programs and mandatory post-incident drug testing. Given that the case is still working its way through the court system, OSHA had no choice but to extend the rule’s effective date from August 10, 2016, to November 1, 2016. Further delays may still be on the horizon.
