Well, the term "largest" is awfully subjective, as is the term "event". I mean, on that scale, would you describe World War II or the Cold War as being a single "event"? Furthermore, the 20th century was perhaps the most diverse, eventful century in all of history. At the start of the 20th century, airplanes were a dream and by the end of it the Internet had become commonplace. Choosing a single "largest" event in all that time could only be a matter of opinion.

Depends on your definition of "world." If you are talking about the physical earth, the endpoint is relative to your start point. So if you are starting where you currently are, the endpoint is right behind you, since the earth is round. If you are defining "world" as the end of human civilization, the end point would be the moment after the last human has died. If you are defining "world" as the celestial existence of the earth, the end point would be immediately after a catastrophic celestial event that destroys the earth.

An OSHA recordable illness is a condition which satisfies the requirements for an OSHA recordable incident (work-related, lost time, medical treatment, light duty, etc.), but which is not created by a single defining event; rather, it occurs over an extended period of time, and its effects on the human body are cumulative and chronic (persistent). Examples of illnesses include carpal tunnel syndrome (and all conditions in that class), hearing loss (that is not caused by a single, defining event), chemical or radiological poisoning (again, not caused by a single, defining event), and so forth.
