Supervisor Workers' Compensation Procedures

If the injury is life-threatening or treatment cannot be delayed, call 911, or take the employee to the nearest emergency room.

For all injuries, an employee should seek treatment from this List of Providers for their initial treatment. The university and the workers' compensation carrier reserve the right to request an independent medical evaluation.

When an employee is injured on the job, or believes they have a work-related illness, the employee must report this immediately to their supervisor. All work-related injuries and illnesses should be reported regardless of how minor the injury or illness. The supervisor must report all accidents, incidents and near-misses via the Safety Incident Report in Workday within 24 hours. If the employee is placed on restricted or limited duty by a doctor, the employee and/or supervisor must inform Michael Jennings and Andrea Velasquez in Human Resources, 540-458-8623,
