  • What to do when an Injury Happens
    Updated On: Nov 02, 2016

    WHAT TO DO WHEN AN INJURY HAPPENS!

    THE FOLLOWING IS A CHECKLIST OF THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU OR A CO-WORKER IS INJURED AT WORK. USE YOUR JUDGEMENT ON WHAT YOU SHOULD ACTUALLY DO BASED ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES AT THE TIME. REMEMBER: DO NOT BE INSUBORDINATE AND DO COMPLY WITH COMPANY RULES.

    1. PERSONAL BELONGINGS & LOCKERS
      • PROTECT THEM FROM UNINVITED SEARCHES.
    2. AVOID DISCUSSING THE INCIDENT
      • YOU MAY INADVERTENTLY SAY SOMETHING WHICH MAY NOT HELP YOU OR AN INJURED CO-WORKER.
    3. WITNESSES
      • KNOW WHO THE WITNESSES ARE OR COULD BE.
      • DID THEY REALLY SEE OR HEAR ANYTHING?
    4. EVIDENCE
      • PRESERVE ALL POTENTIAL EVIDENCE.
    5. PICTURES
      • HAVE PICTURES TAKEN OF EVERYTHING.
    6. COMPANY OFFICERS
      • REMEMBER: PROTECT YOURSELF. COMPANY OFFICERS AND CLAIMS AGENTS HAVE A JOB TO DO FOR THE COMPANY.
    7. STATEMENTS
      • AVOID GIVING STATEMENTS TO ANYONE UNTIL YOU GET LEGAL ADVICE.
        •  IF YOU MUST TALK TO A COMPANY OFFICER, DO IT WITH A WITNESS AND/OR UNION REPRESENTATIVE.
    8. RE-ENACTMENTS
      • IF POSSIBLE, AVOID PARTICIPATING IN RE-ENACTMENTS.
    9. MEDICAL CARE & TREATMENT
      • IF YOU BELIEVE YOU NEED MEDICAL TREATMENT, GET IT IMMEDIATELY.
      • IF YOU ARE PREVENTED FROM GETTING IMMEDIATE MEDICAL CARE YOU NEED TO CALL YOUR LOCAL CHAIRPERSON; DOCUMENT WHO DENIED YOU THE RIGHT TO GET MEDICAL CARE AND WHEN AND WHERE IT OCCURRED. YOU CONTROL YOUR MEDICAL CARE. KEEP OTHERS OUT OF EXAMINING ROOMS.
    10. MEDICAL RELEASES
      • MEDICAL RECORDS AND TREATMENT ARE PRIVILEGED; KEEP IT THAT WAY; 
      • DO NOT SIGN ANY MEDICAL RELEASES WITHOUT LEGAL ADVICE.
    11. GET LEGAL ADVICE QUICKLY
