Post-injury response procedures are a set of written guidelines detailing roles and responsibilities from when a work-related injury first occurs through the first 24-48 hours. The procedures map the steps employee, supervisor, and witnesses must take immediately following a work-related injury.
Using a consistent post-injury response procedure allows the company to exercise its management responsibility to ensure injured employees receive prompt medical care and then return to work quickly.
Written procedures include clearly defined best practices for:
- Medical providers, including onsite providers

- Post-Injury Response Procedure
- Employee Brochure
