Worker’s Compensation

 

What you need to know if you are injured at work:

 

       If you have an injury at work you need to complete an Incident/ Accident Report, whether you seek medical care or not.  This provides a record in case there are problems later and enables the University to track the type of injury; where it occurred; and what, if any, corrective action(s) that needs to be taken to prevent further injury.

 

       If you have an injury that requires medical attention, please follow our usual reporting protocol:

 

  1. Immediately report the injury to your supervisor.

  2. As soon as possible after the injury or accident has occurred, report the injury to the Human Resources Department and complete a ‘First Report of Injury’.  The form is available in the Human Resources Office, or by clicking the link to the left, or clicking here.

  3. Make an appointment with your health care provider or in case of emergency, visit the nearest Urgent Care Center or Emergency Room.
