WHAT EXPENSES ARE COVERED?

- lost wages

- vocational training

If you have been injured on the job, you should:
- Get medical attention if there is an emergency
- Report your injury as soon as possible by giving written notice to your supervisor or someone in a supervisory position. Failure to promptly give notice to your employer may affect your right to benefits. Your employer is not responsible for paying the medical treatment or wages until you give notice of the accident or disease.
- If you work for a subcontractor, you should promptly give written notice of your accident or occupational disease to your direct employer and the general contractor.
- Report all accidents even if the injury seems minor. A small injury can develop into a serious problem.
