Excerpt from "08/04/1999 - Administering a post-exposure hepatitis B vaccine booster is considered medical treatment."
You request clarification on what constitutes medical treatment under 29 CFR 1904.12(d). Specifically, you state that there is some confusion as to whether the administration of a hepatitis B vaccine booster, after a bloodborne pathogen exposure incident, is considered medical treatment and therefore recordable on the OSHA Log 200. The answer is that it is recordable. You also asked for an explanation as to why it is recordable. The short answer is that the bloodborne exposure incident is evaluated as an injury for OSHA recordkeeping purposes.
