If an employee was injured in a work place accident they may be eligible to receive Workers Compensation Benefits. The District’s Workers Compensation Policy (Policy 400.10 Workers Compensation) governs these benefits. In order to be eligible for Workers Compensation Benefits, the employee would need to have been injured while actively fulfilling the duties of their position. This injury must have been reported to administration and documented with the form 122. The injury would also need to have been severe enough to require medical attention and the injured employee would have needed to be evaluated and treated by the appropriate and approved medical provider.
Please note: Falsifying or intentionally reporting inaccurate injury information in order to receive Workers Compensation Benefits may be considered fraud which is a crime and could result in legal action and or an adverse employment action up to and including termination.
Most injuries in the District are minor and require minimal, if any, medical attention. In the event of a more serious injury, we prepared the following guidance to help you determine what to do. These are intended to be guidelines. In the case of an actual emergency use your best judgement. If there is a serious injury and you are unsure what to do, call 911.
Should I call 911?
If a work place accident has occurred and the employee has received serious injuries particularly to the the head, neck or back, if they have lost consciousness, can’t move, or if they have sustained any potentially life threatening injury call 911 immediately.
Should I go to the Emergency Room?
For serious injuries requiring substantial medical assistance, where the injured employee is stable and mobile proceed to the nearest Emergency Room.
Should I go to Occupational Medical Provider.
For most workplace injuries the District’s contracted Occupational Medical providers (Concentra or WorkMed) will be the best providers to evaluate and treat the injury. These providers are specialists in Occupational Health and will be instrumental in developing a treatment plan to help the injured employee recover quickly. This would include strains, contusions, falls, bites, minor cuts, etc.
What should I do with minor injuries that do not require medical attention?
Render first aid as applicable and document the injury. If the injury doesn’t improve or worsens send them to a contracted Occupational Medical provider to have the injury evaluated.

All injuries should be reported to your supervisor, ideally within 24 hours. It is the responsibility of the District to document and report any injuries that require medical attention. The administrative team at each location or department should document any injuries by using Form 122 First Report of Injury to document the injury. If the injury required medical treatment a copy of the Form 122 needs to be sent to Robert Reeder in the District Insurance Office.
