4. As the Benefits Manager, you are now completing the OSHS 300 Log based on the information above. How would you answer the following?

1. How would you classify this case? (see below…death/days away from work/job transfer or restriction/other recordable cases)

I would classify this under category (H) because Karen is required to miss some days from work.

2. How many days would you record for “Away from Work” and how many days for “On job transfer or restriction”?

For the “Away from Work” section I would record five days away. For the “On job transfer or restriction” area I would record fourteen days of restriction.

3. Which box would you check for the “Injury”?
I would check box number one for strictly injury. The other categories would not be the right fit for Karen’s broken arm. Again, as the Benefits Manager you are responsible for Workers’ Compensation and the proper reporting using the attached OSHA forms. You are training Jim in your office to be the “back- up” on the days you are out of the office. Jim has the following questions, how do you answer them?

1. When an injury or illness is considered work related?
According to OSHA, an injury or illness is work related when “an event or exposure in the work environment caused or contributed to the condition or significantly aggravated a preexisting condition”.
