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.
