PERSONNEL <br />WORKERS' COMPENSATION BENEFITS <br />5465 <br />Page 1 of 2 <br />It is the intent of Bonneville Joint School District No. 93 to comply with those applicable <br />provisions relating to Worker's Compensation, as defined in Title 72 and 33-1216(c) of <br />the Idaho Code. All employees and volunteers of the District are covered by Workers' <br />Compensation medical benefits pursuant to, and in accordance with, the terms of the <br />District's Worker's Compensation insurance policy. <br />Guidelines <br />1. Any employee suffering a job-related accident, injury, or illness shall: <br />a. Immediately obtain first aid or emergency medical care as necessary to stabilize <br />their medical condition. This treatment shall, to the extent possible, be in <br />accordance with the requirements of the District's Worker's Compensation <br />insurance policy. See #5465E1 Worker's Compensation Provider List. <br />b. Promptly report the incident to his/her supervisor within forty-eight (48) hours by <br />submitting a completed First Report of Iniury or Illness Exhibit #5465E2 (Unless <br />prohibited by the employee's medical condition, in which case the forms shall be <br />completed as soon as the employee's medical condition reasonably allows.) <br />2. Absent the need for emergency medical care, all school employees who require <br />medical attention in the event of a workplace accident, injury, or illness should obtain <br />medical attention at the District's Designated Occupational Health Clinics. See <br />#5465E1 Worker's Compensation Provider List. <br />3. The District shall investigate as it deems appropriate to determine: <br />a. Whether continuing hazardous conditions exist that require remediation; or <br />b. Whether the employee's work environment caused or contributed to the reported <br />accident. <br />4. The District may require the employee to authorize the employee's physician to <br />release pertinent medical information to the District or to a physician of the District's <br />choice, should an actual claim be filed against the Workers' Compensation Division <br />which could result in additional fees levied against the District. <br />5. The employee shall cooperate with the District's Worker's Compensation insurance <br />carrier to coordinate and effectuate appropriate medical treatment and to secure <br />other available Worker's Compensation benefits, including but not limited to income <br />benefits. <br />Bonneville Joint School District No. 93 <br />
