that allows the employer to stop counting days away from work or restricted workdays when the case has reached 180 days. OSHA’s primary reason for this decision busch light beer all over printed christmas ugly sweater is that very few cases involve more than 180 days away or days of restricted work, and that a cap of 180 days clearly indicates that such a case is very severe. Continuing to count days past the 180-day cap thus adds little additional information beyond that already indicated by the 180-day cap. Thus, on balance, OSHA believes that any problems introduced by moving to a calendar-day system will be more than offset by the improvements in the data from one case to the next and from one employer to another,
and by the resulting improvements in year-to-year analysis made possible by this change in the future, i.e., by the improved consistency and quality of the data. OSHA received a large number of comments on how days away should be counted. The issues addressed by commenters included whether to count scheduled workdays or calendar days, whether the day counts should be “capped,” and, if so, at what level, how to count days away or restricted when employees are terminated or become permanently disabled, and how to handle cases that continue to have days away/ restricted from one year to the next. In response to those commenters who raised issues about inconsistency between the OSHA system and workers’ compensation, OSHA notes that there is no reason for the two systems, which serve different purposes (recording injuries and illnesses for national statistical purposes and indemnifying workers for job-related injuries and illnesses) to use the same definitions.
