In the event of an injury, whether the employee will lose time from work or not, it is imperative that the incident be reported as soon as possible. The law mandates deadlines in which to deny or accept claims. Claims which are reported late may result in fines from the Department of Industrial Accidents which would be levied against the parish.
In the event of an injured employee, the following steps are necessary:
- See that medical assistance is provided immediately.
- Obtain details of the accident.
- Identify any witnesses.
- Obtain photographs of the accident site, if possible.
- Identify any third-party involvement, i.e., equipment malfunction or damages caused by an outside entity.
