Finding an answer to your question about recordkeeping took some research. I
had to call my contacts at OSHA (Region III) and according to them as long as
the employee is considered an employee, which includes administrative leave,
you have to count the number of days as lost work days. The only way to stop
counting is if the employee returns to work without restrictions, transfers
to another job without restrictions, or is terminated.
The use of an asterisk on Form 200 is not acceptable for an injury, only an
illness. An asterisk is used only for illness cases resulting in termination
or permanent transfer, even if no lost workdays were incurred.
For more information on this and other recordkeeping questions, you should
obtain a copy of OSHA's Recordkeepoing Guidelines for Occupational Injuries
and Illnesses. You can call the GPO at 412/644-27221 to order.
