It has happened. A worker is injured. The CWCE designee will have implemented the items laid out in the preceding chapters and this will be implementation of the process. Regardless if you have or have not put the pre injury processes into effect, this chapter will walk the designee through the proper response to an injury.
The response to the injury will include not only what the Workers Compensation policy mandates after an injury (the policyholder’s obligations post accident), but what to do to control costs after an accident occurs. The chapter will define the proper reporting of an injury from the employee to the employer and then from the employer to the insurance carrier and beyond.
The concluding part of the chapter will explore what injuries are to be reported to the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA). This is just the beginning of the post injury and cost containment processes.
