WORKERS COMPENSATION PROCEDURES
It is important injuries at work are handled according to ZPS protocol and district policy. If you are injured on the job, please follow these steps:
- If the injury is a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
- If it is not life threatening, whether you plan to seek medical attention or not, the injury must be reported to your building administrator/supervisor immediately and an injury report filled out. It is important to open a claim within 48 hours of the injury to have it documented.
- Complete the injury report with as much detail as possible, including your social security number. Turn in the completed form to your supervisor or building secretary; they will forward it to the Administration office to open the claim with the insurance company.
In an effort to provide the best medical care possible, clinics specializing in occupational medicine have been pre-authorized to provide care. In order for an injury to be covered by our worker’s compensation insurance, it is important that all employees receive treatment for a work related injury at the Holland Medi-Center, not a personal physician. If an injury occurs after school hours, you may go directly to the Medi-Center; no appointment is necessary. If the Medi-Center is closed, you may go to Zeeland Community Hospital. Please note, your MESSA insurance will not cover an injury if it occurred at work.
