EMERGENCY PROCEDURES IN CASE OF INJURY
Any ULM employee who experiences or witnesses an accident involving personal injury should first determine if the injured person requires assistance.
Reminder: Only the University Police are authorized to call off-campus emergency vehicles. Anyone else calling for an ambulance may be responsible for any resulting costs unless the time involved could be life-threatening.
- Traffic accidents and non-work-related accidents should be reported to the University Police.
- Work-related accidents or near-misses/incidents should be reported to the supervisor of the employee(s) involved in the incident.
- All other accidents should be reported to the Environmental Health and Safety Office at extension 5177.
FIRST AID REQUIREMENTS
All employees must report any injury to their supervisor as soon as practical, at least by the end of the shift during which the injury occurred.
Minor injuries will be treated at the Student Health Center and the employee will be returned to work as soon as practical.
In the event of authorized medical treatment, the immediate
will ensure the completion of an "EMPLOYER'S REPORT OF OCCUPATIONAL
report form and the "INCIDENT/ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION
DA2000 and will forward a copy of each via the Department Head to
Human Resources Office.
If services of a physician are needed, the employee will be given authorization for treatment at the local treatment center designated by Health Services personnel. With the exception of an emergency situation, off campus treatment may be at the expense of the employee and not subject for compensation payment.
In case of a serious injury where the victim should not be moved except by trained emergency medical personnel, the University Police Dispatcher should be notified by calling 1-911 and given the details. In situations which might be life-threatening, the person at the scene should call 9-911 direct in order to save time.
The employee will provide his supervisor with the injury diagnosis and return to work will be by authorization by the attending physician.
Note: ULM does support a back-to-work program so that the injured
return to light duty if not able to return to regular duties.
