§ 14300.9. Recording Criteria for Cases Involving Medical Removal Under Cal/OSHA Standards.

(a) Basic requirement. If an employee is medically removed under the medical surveillance requirements of a Title 8 standard, you must record the case on the Cal/OSHA Form 300.
(b) Implementation.
(1) How do I classify medical removal cases on the Cal/OSHA Form 300?
You must enter each medical removal case on the Cal/OSHA Form 300 as either a case involving days away from work or a case involving restricted work activity, depending on how you decide to comply with the medical removal requirement. If the medical removal is the result of a chemical exposure, you must enter the case on the Cal/OSHA Form 300 by checking the “poisoning” column.
(2) Do all of Cal/OSHA's standards have medical removal provisions?
No. Some Title 8 standards, such as the standards covering bloodborne pathogens and noise, do not have medical removal provisions. Many Title 8 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) Do I have to record a case where I voluntarily removed the employee from exposure before the medical removal criteria in a Cal/OSHA standard are met?
No. If the case involves voluntary medical removal before the medical removal levels required by a Cal/OSHA standard, you do not need to record the case on the Cal/OSHA Form 300.
