Staff Injury Reports

Mandatory Staff Injury Reports

 As per District policy EBBB, Accident Reports, any time a staff member is injured a Medical Incident Accident Report must be completed by the school district employee who witnessed or first responded to the accident no more than 24 hours after the accident.  Regardless of the severity, nature or cause of the accident, it should be reported immediately to the building administrator and/or school nurse.

Timing is critical in reporting an accident or injury and will be costly to the District if injuries are not reported within the first 24 hours.  The District is legally required to report all injuries to the NH Department of Labor.  Failing to do so by the required deadline results in penalties to the district and untimely payment of services.

It is important to note that not all cases result in Workers Compensation claims.  That is solely determined by Primex.

Once your incident/injury is properly reported and an incident form is completed and signed by the principal and nurse, it is their responsibility to submit that form to the SAU Office within a timeframe of 24-48 hours.  The completed and signed form can be sent to Michele E. Flynn, Assistant to the Superintendent.  If she is not available, send the form to Kelly Wessells, Business Administrator, or in an emergency, to Russell Holden, Superintendent.

We are working on converting the incident report form to a digital format that will be more accessible to all parties involved to complete and sign electronically.  This will result in a more timely submission of the State required reports.

If you have any questions, please contact Michele E. Flynn, Assistant to the Superintendent, at the SAU Office (ext. 201).  A copy of Policy EBBB and the Incident Form is attached for your convenience.
