All injured workers must contact their supervisor/employer immediately to notify them of any on-the-job injury. Timely reporting of employee injuries is crucial. All incidents must be reported to the Office of People & Culture in a timely manner. Once the incident is reported the Insurance Specialist will contact you.
There are many times a person is injured at work without requiring immediate medical attention, so it might seem like a good idea to take a wait and see approach and not mention the incident. However, when an accident is not reported on time, an employer can deny you medical treatment and benefits for missed time from work. Report an accident to your employer immediately, even if you think you are not seriously hurt. By reporting the accident, you protect yourself.
