The Workers Compensation Act of Colorado exists to ensure the quick and efficient delivery of disability and medical benefits to injured workers at a reasonable cost to employers.
Workers compensation insurance covers work-related injuries and disease. Benefits include medical, wage loss, and death benefits.
When workers are injured on the job, it must be reported to the supervisor and to Human Resources within four working days of the occurrence. The employee must complete a First Report of Injury form at the Human Resources office. If the injury is life or limb threatening, the employee should seek immediate medical attention at the nearest emergency room. Otherwise a Human Resources representative will schedule an appointment for the employee with UNC's designated medical provider.
To complete a First Report of Injury, contact Stephanie Alsip or Sue Stone as soon as possible after the incident.
