    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: 1904.5 Significant Aggravation
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:

    • A pre-existing injury or illness is significantly aggravated when an event or exposure in the work environment results in any of the following (which otherwise would not have occurred):
      - Death
      - Loss of consciousness
      - Days away, days restricted or job transfer
      - Medical treatment
    Speaker Notes:

    There must be significant aggravation of a pre-existing injury or illness to establish work-relatedness. The workplace event or exposure must aggravate a pre-existing injury or illness enough that it results in greater consequences than what would have occurred but for that event or exposure. This means that the pre-existing condition requires more medical treatment than otherwise needed; more restrictions, more days away, etc.
