Safety & Quality Care

To improve safety of employees, reduce workers’ compensation (WC) claims, ensure excellent care for our employees, and contain costs, the University has specific processes involved in WC administration.  

 

Coverage is available for all employees, including students and temporary workers. WC assists employees when accidental injuries or occupational illness arises from employment.


When an Injury Occurs

The Employee Injury Report form must be completed by the employee and the supervisor for every workers’ compensation injury or illness, regardless of whether medical attention is required. 

 

If medical attention is necessary, the form is taken to the medical provider who will complete his/her portion of the form. On the Stillwater campus, University Health Services (UHS) will provide medical treatment if necessary. At the close of the visit, the medical provider will return the form to the employee, who will return it to the supervisor or appropriate departmental personnel who handles reporting of injuries.

 

For non-emergency accidents that do not require an ER visit, but occur after UHS operating hours or during a campus closure, please go to AMC Urgent Care for medical treatment.

 

The HR/admin liaison will e-mail a copy of the Employee Injury Report to Environmental Health and Safety at ohsp@okstate.edu and OSU worker’s compensation at workerscomp@okstate.edu and distribute to other offices as required by the applicable college/division procedures. If UHS considers the injury “Medical”, fax the Employee Injury Report to Broadspire at 800.245.9927. “First Aid” injuries do not need to be faxed to Broadspire.
