    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: 1904.7(b)(4) - Restricted Work
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:

    A case is not recordable under 1904.7(b)(4) as a restricted work case if:
    • the employee experiences minor musculoskeletal discomfort,
    • a health care professional determines that the employee is fully able to perform all of his or her routine job functions, and
    • the employer assigns a work restriction to that employee for the purpose of preventing a more serious condition from developing.
    Speaker Notes:

    OSHA’s policy regarding preventive transfers is explained in the recordkeeping compliance directive (CPL 2-0.131). Under that policy, a case is not recordable under 1904.7(b)(4) as a restricted work case if three conditions are met:

    1. the employee experiences minor musculoskeletal discomfort,
    2. a health care professional determines that the employee is fully able to perform all or his or her routine job functions, and
    3. the employer assigns a work restriction to that employee for the purpose of preventing a more serious condition from developing.
