When an injury occurs on the job it is important for the employer to document the incident swiftly and accurately while memories and details are fresh. Failure to record important information can cause issues with workers compensation claims and with law suits if they occur. To make sure all relevant information is documented, a form must be used as a guide to fulfill South Carolina Workers Compensation guidelines.
The "South Carolina First Report of Injury" form is a guide through the process of reporting an incident. Order a pack for each business location within South Carolina so that the forms will be available where work is performed. They can be stored with other HR documentation, or if the site does not have file storage they can be kept with First Aide and other safety equipment. Having this pack of forms available on site will allow the employer to quickly prepare the necessary report if an injury occurs.
