    Safety Accident Protocol

    If you have a work accident, or are injured at work, below are steps we recommend you follow. After reading the steps, we recommend you involve your local union rep or safety committee member and your supervisor. 

    1) Check for injuries. If it is an emergency, call 911. Get all parties involved to a safe location.

    2) If you are a technician, make sure you have all of your PPE on. (hardhat, vest, voltage detector, safety glasses, gloves, safety shoes, etc.)

    3) Get a safety committee member or union rep involved.

    4) Feel free to take pictures for yourself, or have your union representative take the pictures for you. DO NOT use the company's equipment to take the pictures or send the pictures you take to the company.

    5) DO NOT do management's job for them. Don't write the company's statement of occurance form for them. 

    6) Tell the truth, but keep your answers short and to the point. Management is trained to ask open ended questions to get you to give lengthy answers. The shorter answer you can give, the better. What you say can possibly lead to discipline. DO NOT sign anything. If you do not recall the situation 100%, it is perfectly fine to say "I do not know" or " I do not recall". 

    7) File a workers comp claim. The company should provide you a workers comp claim number from them. Follow your company's Accident Disability Plan. File a state workers comp claim(this is different than the company's claim).

    SAFETY TIP OF THE MONTH: 

    Broken tools can be replaced. You can't.

    Broken tools can be a major safety concern for your workplace. You have a legal right to a safe workplace. Your employer has the legal responsibility to maintain that workplace.


    Tell your boss immediately. If your boss has got some faulty wiring as well and does not respond, go to your boss’s boss. Talk to your co-workers too, get them involved and make sure to let your Union rep know.

    If your employer won’t act, report them to the authorities. You should file a complaint directly with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). You can do it confidentially, if you choose. If you are in a state that has an OSHA-approved state program, you contact that program. If you work for a federal agency, that agency regulates workplace safety for you. And if there is any imminent danger to life and limb, call this number now:1-800-321-OSHA
