If there is a confirmed case on your job site, you should conduct a thorough investigation and determine if it did occur on the job site. Below is the OSHA outline for determination. If you have any questions contact ABC of WI. See below for OSHA’s recordability criteria:
COVID-19 can be a recordable illness if a worker is infected as a result of performing their work-related duties. However, employers are only responsible for recording cases of COVID-19 if all of the following are met:
- The case is a confirmed case of COVID-19 (see CDC informationon persons under investigation and presumptive positive and laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19);
- The case is work-related, as defined by 29 CFR 1904.5; and
- The case involves one or more of the general recording criteria set forth in 29 CFR 1904.7(e.g. medical treatment beyond first-aid, days away from work).
