If you do have a work-related injury or illness, report it immediately, and complete the First Report of Injury and Occupational Injury and Occupational Disease.

Let the health care provider know if your injury or illness is work related.

Maintain your records. You may be assigned a claim number.

Report all time away from work due to an injury or illness using the MSU-Northern Occupational Accident or Illness Lost Time Report.
