Dear Ms. Liaboe:
Thank you for your facsimile requesting an interpretation on recording restricted work activity on the OSHA 200 Log. The concept of restricted work is based on three criteria as follows:
1. The employee was assigned to another job on a temporary basis, or
2. the employee worked at a permanent job less than full time, or
3. the employee worked at his or her permanently assigned job but could not perform all the duties normally connected with it.
If an employee is cross-trained to perform many jobs on different production lines, any one of those jobs is considered his or her normal duties. Therefore, if the employee is injured and is given a medical restriction which would impact one job on a production line that he or she is currently not working, the case would involve days of restricted work activity.
I hope you find this information useful. If you have further questions please contact my staff at Area Code (202) 219-6463.
