Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    True or False: Even if an injury or illness affecting an employee is not work-related it has to be recorded in the OSHA Form 300.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Injury or illness that is not work-related does not have to be recorded in the OSHA Form 300. The OSHA Form 300 is specifically designed to record work-related injuries and illnesses, as it is used to track and analyze workplace safety and health data. Therefore, only injuries or illnesses that occur as a result of work-related activities need to be documented in this form.

    Jane strains a muscle during her morning exercise routine at home. The next day at work, she has a sneezing attack that causes further injury to the same muscle and needs medical treatment. Would this be considered a work related injury?

    • A.

      Yes – as the “significant aggravation” condition in the OSHA rule applies here

    • B.

      No - as the initial injury was not work-related

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes – as the “significant aggravation” condition in the OSHA rule applies here
    Explanation
    According to the given information, Jane strains a muscle during her morning exercise routine at home. The next day at work, she has a sneezing attack that causes further injury to the same muscle and needs medical treatment. This would be considered a work-related injury because the OSHA rule states that if an injury is significantly aggravated by work-related activities, it is considered a work-related injury. In this case, the sneezing attack at work caused further injury to the muscle that was already strained during Jane's exercise routine at home, meeting the criteria for a work-related injury.

  • 3. 

    Tom experiences minor work-related discomfort to a finger and is transferred to another job till he’s all right. Is this recordable under OSHA rules?

    • A.

      Yes, as it’s work related

    • B.

      No – as the employee is restricted for a few days to prevent a serious condition from developing

    Correct Answer
    B. No – as the employee is restricted for a few days to prevent a serious condition from developing
    Explanation
    According to OSHA rules, a work-related injury or illness is recordable if it results in death, days away from work, restricted work or transfer to another job, medical treatment beyond first aid, or loss of consciousness. In this case, Tom's minor work-related discomfort to a finger resulted in his transfer to another job for a few days to prevent a serious condition from developing. Since there was no days away from work or medical treatment beyond first aid, this incident is not recordable under OSHA rules.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A chemical plant next door to the XYZ factory has a toxic gas leak which sends 7 XYZ employees to the hospital for emergency medical treatment. Is this episode recordable under OSHA rules?

    • A.

      Yes – as it’s work related

    • B.

      No – as it’s not their employer that was responsible for the gas leak

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes – as it’s work related
    Explanation
    Yes, this episode is recordable under OSHA rules because the toxic gas leak occurred at the workplace and affected employees. OSHA requires employers to record any work-related injuries or illnesses that result in medical treatment beyond first aid, such as emergency medical treatment in a hospital. Although the gas leak was caused by a neighboring chemical plant, it still occurred at the XYZ factory and affected XYZ employees, making it work-related and recordable.

  • 5. 

    In case an employee experiences injury or illness to an intimate part of the body/reproductive organ at work, should his/her name be recorded in the OSHA Form 300?

    • A.

      Yes – as it’s a work-related injury

    • B.

      No – this would come under the Privacy Concern Cases part of the rule and therefore the name should not be entered in the OSHA Form 300

    Correct Answer
    B. No – this would come under the Privacy Concern Cases part of the rule and therefore the name should not be entered in the OSHA Form 300
    Explanation
    The answer is No because the injury or illness to an intimate part of the body/reproductive organ falls under the Privacy Concern Cases part of the rule. According to OSHA regulations, certain types of injuries or illnesses are considered sensitive and should not be recorded with the employee's name in the OSHA Form 300 to protect their privacy.
