Student Worker Accident Procedures

If a student employee is injured on the job, his or her supervisor must complete the Boston University Occupational Injury/Illness Report form within 24 hours of the accident.

Any delay in filing may cause the University to be fined and may jeopardize the student employee’s right to receive benefits.

It is the supervisor’s responsibility to fill out and submit this form. The injured student employee should not be completing this paperwork.

For downloadable forms and more detailed information about Workers’ Compensation and Accident Reporting procedures, see Workers’ Compensation: Procedures on the Risk Management website.

Route completed forms to:

Mary Ann French
Student Employment Office
881 Commonwealth Avenue, Second Floor

Any medical bills should also be forwarded to Mary Ann French.

Paperwork will be reviewed and forwarded to Human Resources for processing.

Contact Risk Management immediately at 617-353-3020 when a student employee is severely injured on the job. If the accident occurs after normal office hours or on a weekend, Risk Management should be apprised of the accident on the next business day.

If it is necessary for a student employee to be taken to the hospital, suitable transportation should be provided and the student should be accompanied to the hospital. Transportation back to the student’s residence should also be provided.
