As a reminder regarding transportation to/from clinics:

        • True emergency – Dial 911 – Ambulance to transport to nearest hospital,
        • Injured Employee drives their own car to clinic,
        • Injured employee w/out car may take taxi, UBER, Lyft etc.  Keep receipt and Sedgwick will reimburse,
        • ONLY as a last resort – An MPP may drive injured worker to clinic

(If you already have a  Personal Physician Designation form, on file in Human Resources, you may seek treatment with that doctor.)

  1. If Treatment Beyond First Aid is Needed, You Must Complete the Employee's Claim for Workers' Compensation :  The supervisor will provide this form within one working day of learning about the injury or illness. This is required to request workers' compensation benefits. Fill out and sign the employee portion of the claim form. Describe the injury completely. Include every part of the body affected by the injury. Give the form to your supervisor to complete the employer portion. Forward the completed form to the CSUN Workers’ Compensation Specialist, Karyn Coté. You have now "filed" a claim.  Click here for Human Resources Workers' Compensation Employee & Supervisor Injury Information

4.  Participate With The Accident Investigation. The cause of your injury or illness needs to be determined by a thorough investigation by your supervisor and Environmental Health and Safety using the Supervisor Accident/Incident Investigation Form . The purpose of this investigation is to identify and locate accident causes and not to place blame. Accident investigation can uncover hazardous equipment or materials and helps the supervisor make engineering or work practices changes.
