Employee Injury Procedures
While we as an employer strive to provide a safe workplace through our policies, procedures, training, and equipment, there may be occasions when an employee is injured while working at CBC.
A work-related injury is defined as an injury arising out of and during the course of employment. Any time a work-related injury occurs at CBC, it must immediately be reported to the employee’s supervisor and to the Human Resources Department for assessment and for the determination of potential Workers’ Compensation coverage.
Here are the procedures to follow for a work-related injury of an employee:
- Immediately notify your supervisor and the Human Resources Department.
- If the employee or supervisor believes that medical attention is required, an HR representative should assess the injury.
- If medical treatment is required, the employee must be accompanied by their supervisor or a college representative to a facility chosen by the Human Resources Department. If the injury is life threatening, an ambulance should be called and the injured employee should be taken to the emergency department at St. John’s Hospital.
- Complete the “Report of Occupational Injury or Illness” form (located in HR Connection under “Human Resources Forms”) within 24 hours.
