Reports of Accidental Injury or Disability – Electronic Sharing - MOSH
Effective July 1, 2014, it will no longer be necessary to submit copies to the Commissioner of Labor and Industry any accident or injury report that you are required to submit to the Maryland Workers' Compensation Commission or the Chesapeake Employers' Insurance Company, formerly, the Injured Workers' Insurance Fund.
This departmental bill repeals the requirement that an employer send to the Commissioner of Labor and Industry a copy of each report of a workplace accident or injury that the employer is also required to send to the Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC) or submits to the Injured Workers’ Insurance Fund (IWIF). The bill also repeals the requirement that WCC report to the Commissioner of Labor and Industry whenever WCC believes that there has been an excessive or a high rate of industrial injuries associated with an employer or industry. Instead, WCC must provide the Commissioner of Labor and Industry with electronic access to the data contained in the accidental personal injury or occupational disease reports filed with WCC.
