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.
Any delay in filing may cause the University to be fined and may jeopardize the student employee’s right to receive benefits.
Paperwork will be reviewed and processed by Occupational Health.
Contact Occupational Health immediately at 617-353-6630 or email@example.com. when a student employee is severely injured on the job. If the accident occurs after normal office hours or on a weekend, Occupational Health should be apprised of the accident on the next business day. Consult Occupational Health’s Worker’s Compensation procedures for more details on the notification process.
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.
