HAMILTON-WENHAM REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
STAFF ACCIDENT REPORTS
The School Committee expects the Superintendent to have a procedure in place that informs staff members of their rights and obligations should an accident or injury occur during working hours.
All school personnel who receive any kind of injury on the school premises are required to file a written report of said accident within 24 hours. Forms for this purpose are available at the office of each Principal. Failure to follow this procedure may jeopardize eligibility for Workmen’s Compensation. Specific instructions for documenting and filing a workman’s compensation claim are located in the Nursing Department Policy and Procedure Manual found in each nursing office and front office of a school.
