SkillSignal: Navigating the New OSHA Regulations Coming in 2024

As we move towards a future where safety and compliance are more crucial than ever, SkillSignal stands at the forefront of adapting to and embracing regulatory changes. 

The recent announcement from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) about changes effective January 1, 2024, marks a significant shift in how high-hazard industries manage and report injury data. 

Here’s what you need to know about these changes and how SkillSignal is positioned to help you navigate this new landscape.

Enhanced Electronic Submission Requirements

Starting January 1, 2024, establishments with 100 or more employees in specified high-hazard industries will be required to electronically submit detailed information from their OSHA 300 and 301 forms, in addition to their OSHA Form 300A annual summary.
