Employees are responsible for conducting their work assignments in a safe and healthful manner in order not to expose themselves or colleagues to risks of bodily harm.
When employees are injured while on the job or if they feel ill and suspect their illness is due to their work, it is their responsibility to report the injury or illness and to file a workers' compensation claim.
Supervisors should assist their staff by familiarizing them with the workers’ compensation process and by being prepared to help employees facilitate a claim when an injury has occurred.
Have you been injured on the job?
First, seek the appropriate medical treatment. Once your immediate healthcare needs have been met, please complete the Workers' Compensation Packet with your supervisor and return it to FM Human Resources & Training within 24 hours of the incident.
