Dear Ms. Hogestad:
Thank you for your facsimile dated April 26, requesting an interpretation on recording restricted work activity on the OSHA Log. As found on page 48 of the enclosed Recordkeeping Guidelines for Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, restricted work activity occurs when the employee is physically or mentally unable to perform all or any part of his or her normal assignment during all or any part of the normal workday or shift.
As found in Q&A B-9, on page 49 of the Guidelines, if long-term restrictions result in the permanent assignment to a modified job, the count of days of restricted work activity ceases once the transfer or modification is made permanent. When the modification or transfer is made, the employee must be able to perform all the duties of the new job at that point in time.
I hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions, please contact my staff at Area Code (202) 219-6463.
