Any injury or illness should be reported to OptaComp at 1-877-518-2583 with the exception of First Aid accidents (injury or illness does not require medical treatment).
If an employee sustains a work-related injury or illness that requires emergency medical treatment, they should go directly to the hospital or if needed call emergency medical services by dialing 911. The supervisor or designated employer representative should immediately contact OptaComp and provide the injured employee name, where they are going for treatment and the employee date of birth. OptaComp will immediately contact the medical facility to initiate medical case management. OptaComp will contact the supervisor once the emergency situation is under control. The supervisor/designated Department representative must complete an EHS 11-2 Accident Investigation Report and forward it to EH&S Insurance and Claims Manager.
If an employee is injured and requires non-urgent medical treatment, the employee must immediately report the accident to the supervisor/designated Department representative which will immediately report the claim to OptaComp. This will initiate medical treatment. The claim will then be assigned to an OptaComp nurse who will initiate medical case management. The EHS 11-2 Accident Investigation Report shall be completed and forwarded to the EH&S within 48 hours.
An employee who has sustained a work-related injury where no medical treatment is needed shall notify his/her supervisor/designated Department representative to complete a First Report of Injury or Illness form and a Accident Investigation Report and forward them to EH&S after completion. If no medical treatment is required DO NOT CALL OPTACOMP.
Should an injury occur resulting in the death of an employee, the supervisor/designated Department representative shall immediately report the death to EH&S at 644-6895 and the Division of Workers Compensation Claims at 1-800-219-8953. Once this has been done, the accident shall be called into OptaComp.
