As you discussed according to OSHA restricted work pertains to an individual who has been exposed to injury or illness on the job. Work restrictions should only be recorded if it affects one or more of the individual’s job functions that he/she performs at a minimum, once per week and the employer must conduct an evaluation of the restriction with regards to the routine functions of the employee that was exposed to injury or illness. This is why I feel it is important, and maybe should be law, that all employees should have a documented job description that is provided to the physician or HCP as designated by the company. This way they, the physician or HCP, know when the employee arrives exactly what they do. Many companies work very closely with the medical community, or hire their own staff. Question 8

10 out of 10 points Provide two examples of situations where an injury or illness occurs in the work environment and would not be considered work-related under 29 CFR 1904. Cite the specific OSHA standard(s) where you found the answer. Your response should be at least 75 words in length. Selected Answer: OSHA defines the work environment as the establishment where one or more employees are working as a condition of their employment. 29 CFR 1904.5(b) gives several examples there an inury or illness would not be considered work related. An example of a non-work-related illness is catching the flu or chickenpox, etc. An injury that would not be considered work related is eating, drinking, or voluntary participating in sports. Correct Answer: [None] Response Feedback: Antonio, Another good response. Here is the grading according to the rubric: Content: 7/7; Organization: 2/2, Writing Mechanics: 1/1; Total: 10/10 From an OSHA standpoint, it is imperative for the employer to know and understand who and/or what is protected under 29 CFR 1904 with regard to the determination of work relatedness. Under the 29 CFR

1904 standard, it provides in detail, various examples of situations where an injury and illness have occurred in a work environment that would not be covered. As you described, the employer is not obligated to record an injury or illness if his/her employee was present in the workplace as a member of the general public instead of an employee. Additionally, the employer is not obligated to record an injury or illness if it involves signs and/or symptoms that arise at the workplace but results individually from a non-work-related situation or that the exposure occurred outside the workplace.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
