Dear Mr. Kreh:
Thank you for your letter dated March 21, requesting an interpretation regarding OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping criteria. For OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping purposes, the use of Steri-Strips has always been regarded as medical treatment despite the Review Commission language you cited. If Steri-Strips are used on a work related laceration the case must be recorded on the OSHA Log 200.
I hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions, please contact us at Area Code (202) 219-6463.
