Workers' Compensation: Health Science Campus
University of Toledo Health Science Campus employees who are injured in the scope of, and arising out of their duties as an employee should report such incidents to appropriate supervision as soon as possible.
Supervisors, when notified of an on-duty injury in their area, should immediately assess the situation. In the case of an obvious medical emergency, direct the employee immediately to the UTMC Emergency Department. In non-emergency situations, consider having employees with proper training administer appropriate first-aid.
Supervisors should then refer to the institutional injury reporting policy, Reporting/Processing on-the-job injuries for Workers' Compensation Purposes (3364-10-10) and complete all requirements outline in the policy.
Forms necessary to initiate an Ohio workers’ compensation claim are available to injured employees by contacting the HSC workers’ compensation office at 419-383-4567.
When an injured worker is taken off work by their doctor, they and their supervisors should familiarize themselves with the language in Article 16 of the current AFSCME contract entitled “Injury Leave”.
Supervisors should, in addition to the written report requirements outlined in the policy, notify the workers’ compensation department via voice mail (HSC ext. 4567), or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following essential information:
- Injured employee’s name, position, and department;
- Description of accident, and nature of injury;
- Date, time, and location of injury;
- Daytime departmental contact person and phone extension;
- Any other information deemed significant, such as possible root causes and expected length of absence, if any.
