HANDBOOK FOR SUPPORT STAFF


SECTION 8: SAFETY AND SECURITY
8.1 ACCIDENTS ON THE JOB

If you sustain an on-the-job injury or illness, you are required to report the incident to your supervisor and Campus Safety & Security. All on-the-job accidents are required to be reported immediately, but in no case later than 24 hours after the event. You should have a nurse in the Health Center attend to you. A procedure has been established so that you will receive appropriate medical attention in the campus Health Center and, if necessary, referral to a physician. If the Health Center is closed you will receive instruction from a Campus Safety & Security representative. Your supervisor will submit an injury report to the Human Resources Office for any injury sustained on College property. FMLA will run concurrent with any work-related injury.  Please refer to Section 3.1 regarding payment of health insurance premiums.

The College uses a panel of physicians and other health care providers for all work related injuries. Employees must select a physician or other health care provider from the panel for treatment. In order to have medical treatment paid by the College’s insurer, the employee must continue to visit the physician or other health care provider for 90 days, if treatment is needed, from the date of the first visit.
