8442 - REPORTING ACCIDENTS
The School Board directs that all reasonable efforts be made to ensure a safe learning and working environment for the students and employees of this Corporation. To that end and to the end that legitimate employee claims for worker's compensation be expedited, the Board requires that accidents be reported and evaluated. Any accident that results in an injury, however slight, to a student, an employee of the Board, or a visitor to the schools must be reported promptly and in writing to the Corporation business office. Injured persons shall be referred immediately to the appropriate personnel for such medical attention as may be needed.
The injured employee, visitor, or the staff member responsible for an injured student shall complete a form, available in the office of the building principal, that includes the date, time, and place of the incident; the names of persons involved; the nature of the injury to the extent that it is known; and a description of all relevant circumstances.
Any employee of the Board who suffers a job-related injury must report the injury and its circumstances to the building principal or job supervisor, as appropriate, and the Superintendent's office as soon as possible following the occurrence of the injury. The failure of an employee to comply with this mandate may result in disciplinary action.
The Superintendent shall prepare administrative guidelines which should include procedures for notification of the insurer.
