Accident Reporting

 
Who Do I Contact If I Have a Work Related Injury?

If you are an Express Employee:
Visit the school nurse, then contact your Express Services Staffing Consultant.
Who do I call if the injury is life threatening?
During regular office hours call (219) 465-1868 
After office hours please call (219) 508-2898 

If you are a PCES Employee:
Contact Quinn Van Rys at 219-464-9607
Fax Incident Reports to Quinn Van Rys at (219) 464-0535
Email Quinn Van Rys at qvanrys@pces.k12.in.us
 
If you are a VCS Employee: 
Please contact your school nurse and building administrator and they will get the information to Omi Suiter in the Administration Building. The Supervisor and Employee will be completing a report of injury inside RiskNav, determining the cause of the injury.
 
Life Threatening injuries should be dealt 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.
 
The VCS employee will then go to WorkForce Health for evaluation with an authorization form provided to them by the school nurse or building administrator.
