“We have an incredible safety record; no OSHA recordables for the 6 years I’ve been here and I attribute that to Axiom’s involvement.

The nurses are so wonderful and so attuned to the Employees and help them return to work safely after an injury. They listen very well and the education is the most important. Our employees and managers love them.

Thank you for all that you do.

Is an Injury or Illness Actually Work Related?

by | Oct 17, 2017 | Employee Health Management, Employee Health Medical Management, Injury Case Management, Workplace Safety


When it comes to classifying injuries and illnesses, most tend to focus on OSHA recordability, such as whether the injury or illness is considered first aid, restricted duty, lost time, etc.

However, the most critical question many times overlooked is whether the injury or illness is actually work related.

According to OSHA Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illness / Determination of Work-Relatedness 1904.5, an injury or illness may be considered work-related if an event or exposure in the work environment either caused or contributed to the resulting condition or significantly aggravated a pre-existing injury or illness.

While work-relatedness would typically be presumed for injuries or illnesses resulting from events or exposures occurring in the work environment, there are exceptions which specifically apply and therefore deem the injury or illness non work related.

Is your organization recording injuries or illnesses that may actually be non-work related?  Use the checklist to help you decide.
