Per OSHA, if no medical treatment was provided, there is no need to report an injury; here is a helpful chart:
If medical treatment was provided, it would be necessary to report if the accident/incident occurred on employer property - please see:
QUESTION An employee arrives for work. As she is walking across the parking lot prior to the start of her shift, she is bitten by a wasp/bee and has an allergic reaction. She is taken to the doctor where she is given an injection and a prescription. Is this case recordable? ANSWER Yes, this is a recordable case. The parking lot is considered part of the establishment and thus the work environment. Punching in/out on a time clock does not determine work relatedness. The bee sting is considered a work related injury and the employee was administered a prescription, which is medical treatment.
