5.4.4 Report of Injury

Any injury while on the job, no matter how minor, should be reported promptly to the employee's immediate supervisor or the department head.  Aside from the desirability of reporting an injury so that it may be properly treated, it is important that the Department of Human Resources be furnished immediately with a Report of Injury Form with complete information regarding the employee's injury.  Employees are required to report all injuries to the Department of Human Resources as soon as is reasonably practicable.  Although it is the employee’s responsibility to complete a Report of Injury Form, the Department of Human Resources will coordinate with the employee so that required forms are completed as soon as possible.
