Student Worker Accident Procedures

If a student employee is injured on the job, the student’s supervisor must complete the Boston University Occupational Injury/Illness Report form within 24 hours of the accident. The supervisor should also document the incident for their own records, and notify their department’s Human Resources liaison.

For downloadable forms and more detailed information about Workers’ Compensation and Accident Reporting procedures, see Workers’ Compensation: Procedures on the Occupational Health Center’s website.

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.

Paperwork will be reviewed and processed by Occupational Health.
