If an employee who routinely works ten hours a day is restricted from working more than eight hours following a work-related injury, is the case recordable?
Generally, the employer must record any case in which an employee’s work is restricted because of a work-related injury. A work restriction, as defined in 1904.7(b)(4)(i)(A), occurs when the employer keeps the employee from performing one or more routine functions of the job, or from working the full workday the employee would otherwise have been scheduled to work. The case in question is recordable if the employee would have worked 10 hours had he or she not been injured.
