if they are solely the result of employees doing personal tasks at the establishment outside of their assigned working hours. This exception, which responds to inquiries received over the years, allows employers limited flexibility to exclude from the recordkeeping system situations where the employee is using the employer’s establishment for purely personal reasons during his or her off-shift time. For example, if an employee were using a meeting room at the employer’s establishment outside of his or her assigned working hours to hold a meeting for a civic group to which he or she belonged, and slipped and fell in the hallway, the injury would not be considered work-related.

OSHA also expects the number of cases affected by this exception to be small.
