If someone is injured on the job, what are you, the employer, required to do? Do you know where the necessary forms and procedural information are located at your workplace? Do your employees know where to go to get treatment for a work-related injury or illness?
Every employee and manager should be able to answer ‘yes’ to these questions. If you don’t know the answer, we’re here to help! Some important things to remember about reporting injuries or illnesses include reporting every incident – even if the employee decides not to seek treatment – and submitting every report to StaffScapes immediately. This will ensure you are staying compliant with workers compensation laws and avoiding costly fees for delayed reporting.
Managers should make sure all employees know where their nearest Concentra location is. All work sites should have a Concentra map with the employment law posters and should keep them in a common area for employees to view at any time. Employees should also know how important it is to report every incident, regardless of how minor they may seem.
