If you get injured on the job, make sure to notify your employer right away. If there is a handbook, follow the guidelines for reporting an injury. If there is no handbook, try to find someone in a management position. Always fill out an incident report. Try to be as descriptive as possible and list all of the body parts you injured, not just the injury that hurts the most. If your employer fills out the incident report for you, make sure you get to see a copy. If it is wrong, then write a letter explaining what is wrong with the statement.
