No indicators of Significant Aggravation

You said an event or exposure in the workplace did NOT result in:

  • one or more days away from work,
  • one or more days of restricted work,
  • one or more days of job transfer,
  • medical treatment beyond first aid,
  • loss of consciousness,
  • death, or
  • Standard Threshold Shift in hearing.

Therefore, it appears that no event or exposure "significantly aggravated" a pre-exiting condition.
