When an employee is injured on the job, proceed with the following:

  1. It is necessary for the employer to fill out the required First Report of Injury form and for the person completing the form and the injured worker to sign the form and then submit it to Benchmark Administrators. Please do not let the injured worker’s inability to immediately sign the form delay reporting of the accident/injury.
  2. Initial medical can be done by a local urgent care, an industrial medical clinic, or a provider designated by the injured worker. If possible, notify the medical provider that you have an injured worker coming and that Benchmark Administrators is the claims administrator.
  3. If you are a drug free workplace, post-accident drug testing must be completed in accordance with your drug free workplace policy procedure.
  4. Advise the injured worker to return to your office or job site after seeing the doctor and give you the doctor’s signed return to work slip or documentation of medical disability.
  5. Please forward any medical status forms indicating the injured worker’s ability to return to work or documentation of medical disability to Benchmark Administrators.
  6. If a worker is seriously injured and needs immediate care or is transported by ambulance, the employer should have a co-worker or supervisor go with the injured worker to assist the injured worker with any insurance related information that the medical provider may require.
  7. If there is a serious injury, notify Benchmark Administrators immediately by telephone at 1-800-289-4502.
