Dear Ms. DuFrane:
Thank you for your facsimile dated May 27, requesting an interpretation for recording cases involving restricted work activity on the OSHA 200. As found in Q&A C-2 on page 52 of the Recordkeeping Guidelines for Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, if the restriction does not go beyond the day of injury or onset of illness, the case is recorded as a nonfatal case without lost workdays (column 6 or 13). As found on page 23, Section E of the Guidelines, an employer is required to retain and maintain the Log for a period of five years. New entries should be made for previously unrecorded cases that are discovered or for cases that initially were not recorded but were found to be recordable after the end of the year in which the case occurred. I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any further questions, please contact my staff at Area code (202) 219-6463.
