For Employees Injured on the Job
You must report any work-related injury or illness to your supervisor immediately. Your supervisor is required to file an online injury report within 24 hours of the incident. They may need to obtain information from you and any witnesses about the incident. Failure to do so may interfere with and possibly jeopardize your Workers’ Compensation coverage.
MIT policy requires that you seek medical attention from the MIT Medical Department immediately following the injury. If you are physically unable to report to MIT Medical, call the MIT police at (617) 253-1212 or dial 100.
