Q007 - Parking Lot

Question: 

The employee was walking up the stairs at work and felt a snap in their leg. The employee was not carrying anything work-related and was doing nothing more than walking up the stairs. Is it recordable?

Answer:

NO, it is not recordable. The commute is excepted from work-relatedness. The commute doesn't end until the employee physically steps foot onto the work establishment. So, if the employee never got out of the vehicle, then the commute did not end and is therefore not work-related. If the incident occurred the same way but during the normal workday (not during the commute) it would not be excepted and should be recorded.
