Dear Ms. Park:
Thank you for your letter dated November 16, requesting guidance for recording occupational asthma cases on the OSHA 200 Log. As MIOSHA correctly pointed out, occupational asthma cases should be recorded as "Respiratory Conditions Due to Toxic Agents" (column 7c of the Log.). The guidance found in Appendix C of the Recordkeeping Guidelines for Occupational Injuries and Illnesses is in error.
I hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions, please call us at Area Code (202) 219-6463.
