Accident Reporting

 
 
Employee Accident/Incident Reporting:
 

Life-Threatening injuries should be dealt with immediately by calling 911.

Direct Supervisors should still be notified as soon as possible.

For exposure to body fluids or blood, notify your supervisor to ensure it is properly disposed of.

 

Any remaining Workers' Compensation Questions should be directed to the Benefits Coordinator.
Our workers' compensation carrier is United Heartland Insurance.
They can be reached by phone at 800-258-2667.

 

Who do I contact if I have a work-related injury?

 

If you are a VCS Employee who gets injured: 

Please contact your school nurse and building administrator of any injury immediately
Once you have reported the injury, your school nurse or building supervisor will enter the information inside our risk navigation website. You will then be given an authorization form to take to Community Healthcare System (Occupational Health) so they can evaluate your injury and determine the next appropriate step in your care. 

 

To ensure the Worker's Compensation claim will be properly updated and approved, all forms that are given to the employee from the visit to Community Health- or any other medical facility- must be given to your Benefits Coordinator within 24-48 hours of the visit. Employees who seek medical attention on their own, before notifying their supervisor first of the injury, could be responsible for all medical expenses incurred.
