Worker's Compensation Reporting Change

Posted: November 8, 2017

A change has been made with reporting worker's compensation injuries.

All,

The College of Agricultural Sciences has made a change to Reporting Worker's Compensation Injury Claims.

All First Reports Of Injury (FROI) will be completed by the College Safety Specialist.

Some of the reasons for the change include:

•    Centralizing the FROI Process
•    More Accurate Injury Documentation and Reporting
•    Correlating injury trend data
•    Identifying injury patterns and trends will assist us in determining needs for retraining, equipment modifications, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) changes, etc.
•    Associating the Injury Report with Injury / Near Miss / Incident Investigation Reporting
•    The data from the FROI will be key in completing the Injury Investigation Reporting.  This will in turn allow us to better determine causes and corrective actions.
•    Keep in mind that these reports are fact finding only and will never associate blame or discipline
•    Our process will only be completing the FROI; further action for the workers compensation claim will be handled by Human Resource Representatives and the Absence Management Team

If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact .

Thank you for your help and cooperation as we roll out this new process.
