When recording injuries/illnesses on OSHA Form 300 (the OSHA Log), how do I record an injury where the employee has days away from work (DAFW) and days of job transfer or restriction (DJTR)?

When an employee is injured and has both DAFW and DJTR, you should only check off column H  (case with days away from work) but you must record the number of DAFW in column K and the number of DJTR in column L.  However, you only want to report the injury once and if you check column H and column I, the injury is counted twice.  When classifying the case on the Form 300, there is a notation indicating to check only one box for each case based on the most serious outcome for that case.   OSHA considers injuries with even 1 day away from work more serious than an injury with job transfer or restriction.
