Report your work injury
Notify your employer of your injury or illness and of any situation which may present a danger to yourself, your employer, or others.
How should I notify my employer?
While immediate safety in the workplace needs to be considered, the employer, supervisor, or appropriate department should be notified of your work injury immediately in writing by filing an incident report. Be sure to ask for a copy of the report.
It is important to keep in mind that many employers will have written safety guidelines and procedures to follow in the event of an Ohio work related injury.
Seek Medical Attention
Your personal safety, well being, and health should be a priority. .
The level of medical attention should be based on the severity of your Ohio work injury or trauma. As every situation is different and may warrent a different level of treatment, the emergency room may be an ideal place to start. The medical professionals in the ER can determine if your health is in immediate danger and guide you as to the next type of doctor to seek attention from.
When contacting the doctor be sure to find out if they are certified by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (Ohio BWC) and if they are willing to accept payment through the Ohio Workers' Compensation system.
