Worker's Compensation Reminder
If a K-State employee is injured while on duty they are required to report the accident within three days. Agents would report to their regional director's office or the Extension Operations Office. Area and campus based employees would report to their supervisor or department head's office.
If the injury doesn't require medical treatment complete the Accident Report with as much detail as possible and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org within three days.
If the injury requires emergency medical treatment, take the employee to the nearest emergency medical facility. Call the State Self Insurance Fund (SSIF) at 785-296-2364 to report the injury. Complete the Accident Report with as much detail as possible regarding the injury and submit to email@example.com. In the email indicate that the employee received emergency treatment and that the SSIF has been notified.
If the injury requires medical treatment (but not immediate emergency treatment) call the SSIF at 785-296-2364 and request medical treatment. Complete the Accident Report Form and submit within three days to firstname.lastname@example.org.
