If you have a visitor injured at your job site or place of business, there are a number of steps you should take immediately:
- File an accident report – if an accident has occurred on location at a job site, a formal report should be filed. Document all details of how the accident occurred. Also provide details on the injuries sustained by the visitor. If they are able to do so, they should also document the experience on the report to ensure that you have all sides of the story.
- Suggest medical treatment – ensure that the visitor receives necessary medical treatment and request a copy o the medical report if injuries are more severe so that records from a medical doctor are also available.
- Contact insurance – if the situation is severe enough ensure that you contact your insurance company with the details sooner rather than later and they can provide the appropriate advice.
