I. School staff members are covered by the district's self-insured program which has been approved by the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. Members are protected in two ways:
A. Medical costs resulting from job injuries are paid.
B. Injured employees are paid a partial wage while off work because of a job injury or illness due to on-the-job causes.
II. When an injury occurs on-the-job, the following procedures must be followed:
A. Report the accident or injury to the supervisor immediately.
B. Fill out a district Employee Accident Report supplying as much detail as is available.
C. If medical attention is required, obtain a Self-Insurer Accident Report (SIF-2) from the secretary in your work area and complete the "Worker" portion of the form starting with the employee name. Answer all questions prior to medical treatment. In emergency situations, the form will be completed after treatment.
D. A Physician's Initial Report form is also required when medical assistance is required. This form is available from the secretary in your work area and must accompany the injured employee, to the hospital or doctor's office except in emergency situations.
