Employers will no longer be required to record adverse reactions from Covid-19 vaccinations on their OSHA 300 logs.
It rescinds previous guidance that said employers who require employees to be vaccinated as a condition of employment must record any adverse reaction. In a summary of changes released on June 10, OSHA indicated that the about-face in reporting requirements was done so as not to hinder incentives for employee vaccinations.
OSHA noted that it will not enforce its 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements through May 2022. At that time it will reevaluate its position.
