Safety

To report work-related incidents:

  1. Immediately report accident/incident to your supervisor
  2. Promptly seek medical care as needed
  3. Thoroughly complete and sign the First Report of Injury/Illness
  4. Send a copy of the report to claims management and the IGB safety office.

    An employee who is injured on the job must inform the employer promptly. Any delay in notifying the employer can delay the payment of benefits. A delay of more than 45 days may result in the loss of all benefits. Notice to a fellow worker who is not a supervisor or otherwise a part of management is not considered notice to the employer.
