Worker's Compensation

Worker's Compensation is a benefit program that pays for medical treatment and wages lost due to injuries or illnesses that happen at work. All on-campus or work-related injuries or illnesses, or near misses, should be reported as soon as possible. By reporting you are allowing us to assist in creating a safer work environment for our employees and students.

What if you are injured at work?  This page contains information for employees in the event of a work-related injury or illness. The most important things to do as soon as possible are to:

  1. report the injury or illness to your supervisor (employer) as soon as possible,
  2. get the medical attention you need, and
  3. complete the three mandatory forms within 48 hours or as soon as possible.

There are mandatory forms that must be completed when reporting any employee injury. A report should be made for any and all injuries or near misses on campus or while doing work-related tasks.  Because we must process all injury reports in a timely manner, it is important that the forms be filled out completely and accurately. Injury reports must include physical location of incident, explanation of how incident happened, and location of injury on employee's person. If you have any questions about these forms, please contact Jennifer Friedman in the Office of Human Resources at 715-425-3621.
