Question: An employee disturbs an anthill while installing a pole into the ground for testing weather resistance for a new solar panel encapsulant. The ant bites are primarily on the employee's hands, are painful, itchy and become swollen. An occupational health nurse recommends an OTC Benadryl anti-itch ointment and the employee returns to work full time. The primary job duty of the employee requires dexterity in his hands due to manipulation of small electrical components and soldering capacitors, resistors and wires. The employee's ability to produce product drops dramatically 80% and the company trains a second employee to temporarily assist the employee and maintain needed production levels. Is it recordable?
