Recording criteria for medical removal cases.
(1) The employer must record any case that involves the medical removal of an employee on the OSHA 300 Log under the medical surveillance requirements.
(2) The employer must enter each medical removal case as either a case involving days away from work or a case involving restricted work activity. For medical removal cases that resulted from chemical exposure, you must check the "poisoning" column.
1. Standards that do not include medical removal provisions include bloodborne pathogens and noise.
2. Standards that cover specific chemical substances have medical removal provisions. These standards include, but are not limited to, lead, cadmium, methylene chloride, formaldehyde, and benzene.
3. If you voluntarily remove an employee from exposure before the medical removal criteria are met, you do not have to record the case.
