This might be the appropriate time to remind folks of the new rule regards the Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses. While a portion (respects anti-retaliation protections) of the rule is already in place, the primary focus of the rule is regarding the electronic reporting of injury and illness data. This is to be phased in over two years, with the first deadline coming this summer, on July 1, 2017.  More details can be found in the link below:
