Occupational Health Services: What to Do if an Employee Gets Injured

The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) is a federal law that aims to ensure that every employee in the country is safe and healthy as they go about their work. Yet, despite an employer’s best efforts, accidents can still happen in the workplace. If that day comes for one of your employees, it’s critical that you, as their employer, know what to do. According to occupational health services, here are four important things for you to do if an employee is injured on the job:

Seek medical attention for the employee

Getting medical help for the injured individual is always the most important first step in ensuring your employee’s safety as well as protecting yourself. Call 911 if the injury requires immediate medical attention. Even if the resulting injury is not life-threatening, you should still encourage your employee to see a medical professional as soon as possible.
