ON-THE-JOB INJURIES

  •  

    The Everett School Board recognizes that safety and health standards should be incorporated into all aspects of the operations of the District. Your safety is important to us.

    If you are injured at work report your accident/injury to your supervisor, then CALL NURSE TRIAGE HELPLINE AT 833-WCT-NURS (833-928-6877) whether you seek medical care or not.  

    In the event of a life-threatening emergency, call 911. 

    The Puget Sound Workers’ Compensation Trust is the third-party administrator managing the District’s employee Accident/Incident Reports and work injury claims. If you indicate that you have sought or intend to seek medical care, a claim for worker's compensation benefits will be established for you. You will hear from PSWCT within three business days. 

    Upon submitting your report and work injury claim, the Puget Sound Workers’ Compensation Trust will email you the following:

    • Your claim number (give this number to your doctor/medical provider)
    • Prescription letter (to fill/pay for any prescriptions from your medical provider)
    • General work injury claim information

    When submitting a work injury claim, you must also contact the Payroll and Benefits department to discuss your status and next steps. If you are off for any amount of time related to your work injury claim, you are required to complete a time loss election form, which must be requested from the benefits office, completed by you and then submitted back to the benefits office within 7 days of the date of injury. The benefits office will review this required form with you, as your elections will directly impact District pay and may impact your medical benefit eligibility. All completed forms can be faxed to 425-385-4135. 

    You may choose your own doctor/medical provider for your first treatment visit. However, ongoing treatment of your injury must be from a state-approved medical provider. Below are links to provider lists that support your work injury claim:

      Local Medical Providers

      State L&I Search for Medical Providers

    It is extremely important that you submit a copy of the completed Activity Prescription Form (or whatever paperwork the medical provider gives you) immediately after receiving treatment and following every appointment. This document can be faxed to the benefits office at 425-385-4135, scanned and emailed to benefits@everettsd.org, or brought to the benefits office in the CRC Building at 3900 Broadway, Everett.

    If you have general questions regarding workers' compensation benefits, please visit the Department of Labor & Industries website for injury claims. For specific claim questions after filing, please contact your claims adjustor with Puget Sound Workers' Compensation Trust at 253-778-7667.
