OSHA Delays Implementation of Electronic Recordkeeping Rule

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently announced that they will indefinitely delay the previously scheduled July 1, 2017, due date regarding electronic information submission of the Form 300A. The electronic recordkeeping requirement, known as the “Final Rule,” includes provisions for certain employers to electronically submit workplace injury and illness data that they are already required to record on forms they keep on-site.

Jeff Garr
Jeffrey C. Garr has an entrepreneurial spirit and is an early pioneer of human resource (HR) outsourcing.

Over 18 years ago, Jeff recognized that strategic HR outsourcing provided a number of important advantages to small- and mid-sized businesses, allowing them to better control capital costs, minimize legal risk, and operate more efficiently. With this in mind, in 1997, Jeff helped launch HR Logic, Inc., a Fidelity Investments company focused on HR outsourcing. In 2001, he started his own HR outsourcing company, AdminaService, Inc., and in 2005, Jeff merged his company with HR Knowledge. Together, these two companies offer a unique and integrated HR outsourcing model supported by high-touch client service. Today, HR Knowledge provides best-in-class HR services at an affordable cost and employs over 50 employees.

As CEO of HR Knowledge, Jeff has been a driving force behind the company’s significant growth. He is the creator of HR Knowledge’s signature “concierge-level client service,” which has helped position the company as a leading provider of outsourced HR for, among others, small- to mid-sized businesses, nonprofits, charter and private schools, and high tech companies.

Jeff is an active member and past president of the Mansfield, MA Rotary Club. Currently, he has been the president of Network 128 for over 10 years, a widely respected business-to-business networking group in Greater Boston, Massachusetts. Jeff earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science, Summa Cum Laude, from Northeastern University.

Known for his unwavering commitment to his clients, employees and community, the only thing Jeff is more passionate about is his family – his lovely wife Tania and their three children, Jackie, Jack and Megan. Jeff enjoys traveling, working out, reading an interesting book and dining at a favorite restaurant.
