Subject: HELP-What are your company policies on accident reporting???


We have a company policy that states “Accidents wh ich occur

on company premises must be reported before the end of t he

shift” no matter the severity. The consequence for leaving company

premises,  then reporting it the next day or severa l days after that,

is immediate termination.  Prevention is our goal.& nbsp; However, if an

accident occurs and we are not notified, then we cannot prevent

it from happening to another employee, we cannot perform the

mandatory drug test, and we cannot take them to the doct or for

medical evaluation and care.

What are your rules or policies on accident reporting??? ??

I need your replies.

Thank You

Paula Brown
