What constitutes a lost time injury?

Q: Could you please provide some clarification around lost time injuries? I would like to know whether two circumstances would count as lost time injuries:

  • when a worker seeks medical treatment, and the doctor advises they are fit for full duties immediately but the worker chooses to take sick leave related to an incident; and
  • incidents occurring during travel to and from work.
