All EOU employees are covered by workers’ compensation insurance in the course of their employment at EOU. Workers’ compensation insurance ensures that medical costs and any wages lost are taken care of in the event of a work related injury or illness. When an injury, illness or “near-miss” safety related incident occurs in the course of employment, all EOU employees are required to immediately notify their supervisor. Reporting is required for all injuries and illnesses regardless of severity or whether or not medical treatment is sought. All injury and illness incidents are required to be investigated and an incident investigation form completed by the employee’s supervisor and received by the Human Resources Department within 48 hours of the incident. The investigation form can be accessed here: https://www.eou.edu/hr/saif/ If the injury or illness requires treatment by a medical provider, a Workers’ Compensation Notice of Claim Form 801 must be completed by the employee immediately after visiting a medical provider whenever physically possible. The Notice of Claim 801 form can be accessed from the Human Resource Page here: https://www.eou.edu/hr/saif/ For more information please contact Human Resources at 541-962-3548.
