Accident Reporting and Investigation

All injuries incurred on the job should be reported. The specific procedures to follow for reporting injuries are described in The Center for Human Resources, Workers’ Compensation Web page. Workers’ Compensation forms may be found in The Center for Human Resources, Documents / Forms Web page.

It should be noted that separate requirements exist for “minor” and “serious” injuries. For purposes of this section, a serious injury is any industrial injury or occupational disease which: (1) results in a death, dismemberment, disfigurement, or loss of work time beyond the day of the injury; (2) requires medical treatment other than first aid; or (3) involves exposure to chemical substances in amounts considered hazardous, or substances which are listed as regulated carcinogens.
