Recordable or Non-Recordable?

Case 1: A woman is using a curling iron in the ladies lounge at the workplace before starting her shift. She sustains a small burn to her neck, which she does not seek treatment for. Is it recordable?

Case 2: An employee spilled a cleaning solution on his sleeve. He felt a burning sensation on his arm, so went to the washroom to rinse off the shirt and wash his arm. He did not notice any burn or rash on his arm. However, he fainted and hit his head on the sink which needed sutures. Recordable?

Case 3: An employee sprains an ankle while descending some stairs carrying a file box at work. You diagnose a grade I sprain, apply an elastic wrap and air stirrup, prescribe Ibuprofen 200mg tid, and return him to full duty at his desk job the same day. Recordable?
Case 4: A woman cuts her finger while opening boxes in the office where she works. You repair the wound with surgical adhesive, protect it with a plastic finger guard, and return her to full duty with no restrictions the same day. Recordable?

“I just finished the course on OSHA Recordables. It really helped clarify some issues for me. I was assuming certain events were NOT recordable, but I was WRONG. My clients will be happy to see that I can reduce the number of recordables by following the guidelines provided in the course. I can’t wait to check out the course on sleep apnea for DOT examinations next.”
