Post-Accident Testing & Those Not-So Obvious Situations

Tara, a new Program Administrator, called looking for clarification about a workplace accident involving an office employee. A week ago one of their employees, Cheryl, injured her foot while setting up for a meeting and sought medical attention. Tara was wondering if Cheryl should have also been sent for a post-accident test. Tara was worried that if additional medical treatment became necessary or a worker’s compensation claim was filed, that as a company representative she might not have fulfilled her duty and obligation around reporting and responding to the workplace accident.
