Section 8-43-102(1)(a) of the Colorado Workers' Compensation Act states that "Every employee who sustains an injury resulting from an accident shall notify said employee's employer in writing of the injury within four days of the occurrence of the injury."
DISTRICT 6 PROCEDURE
REPORT THE INJURY
All District 6 employees should report the injury to their supervisor immediately (same day if possible) even if no medical treatment is requested.
COMPLETE THE FORMS
Complete a District 6 workers' compensation accident report and the Employee Choice of Designated Work Comp Medical Provider form for any work-related injury. These accident reports and selection forms are available at your work sites. Simply contact your supervisor, health clerk, office manager, or the District 6 Risk Management Specialist at 970-348-6113. Also available here in ENGLISH and SPANISH.
You must also call the Risk Management Specialist at 970-348-6113 to file a First Report of Injury on the same day of the injury or the next business day. This only takes a few minutes to answer a series of questions needed to complete the First Report of Injury.
NEED MEDICAL TREATMENT?
Contact the Risk Management Specialist at 970-348-6113 if you need medical treatment for your work-related injury. They will contact our designated work comp medical provider that you selected to schedule an appointment for you. Employees should be aware that they must use a District designated work comp medical provider for any work-related injury if the costs are to be paid by Workers' Compensation. You will be responsible for all medical costs if you do not use one of our designed work comp medical provider. Designated work comp medical provider forms can be found here in ENGLISH and SPANISH. Your own personal physician cannot treat you. Keep in mind that your District 6 health insurance will not provide benefits for a work-related injury.
Contact the District 6 Risk Management Specialist during the business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, to report your injury or to ask any questions you may have 970-348-6113.
The importance is safety --
Because every one of us is someone's hero.
