What to do if someone gets hurt on the job

No one ever wants to see or experience an on-the-job injury, but there are specific steps that are required if an injury occurs.

First and foremost:

  • Notify your supervisor about the injury immediately, no matter how minor the injury may seem.
  • Obtain medical attention, if needed.

Additional specific steps, including completion of required documentation, are described on the Workers’ Compensation page on My UT Health (scroll to Employee Work-Related Injury section).

Links to the Workers’ Compensation page are posted in multiple locations around My UT Health, including in the Quick Links section of the My UT Health home page.

Additional steps that injured employees may need to fulfill after the injury, based on their circumstances, also are described on the Workers’ Compensation page.
