WHAT TO DO AFTER AN INJURY
There are a few basic steps that should be initiated by each employer after an employee is injured on the job. The following will assist you in meeting those responsibilities.
Make sure that the injured worker is provided the appropriate medical treatment. If necessary arrange for transportation to an appropriate medical provider. In the event of a severe injury initiate appropriate emergency medical care including calling for the fire department or ambulance. Less severe injuries that are not threatening to life, limb, or vision can be directed to appropriate urgent care or medical services facility.
Post-accident drug testing should be done for every injured worker. Please contact RAS at (800) 732-1486 ext 1 if you need assistance arranging for a post-accident drug test. Make sure that medical providers are aware of the need for each injured worker to receive a post-accident drug test.
Complete the Employer's first report of injury Form 122. This form should be completed as timely as possible and forwarded to Risk Administrative Services (RAS). Blank forms are available by clicking here or through RAS. Upon completion, the form can be faxed or mailed to RAS.
Try to provide modified or light duty to meet any restrictions that might limit the injured workers. Keeping your employees working in a productive and safe capacity is the most effective cost savings action an employer can take following an injury.
