Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I get injured at work?

In the case of an emergency, the first thing you should do is seek immediate medical attention. Otherwise, your first step should be to tell your employer. Your company will likely have a specific protocol for reporting the accident and resulting injuries. In addition to that report, keep a record of the incident, including the date, time, location, and circumstances surrounding the injury, and if you can, take pictures.

Then, contact an experienced doctor who specializes in workers' compensation cases, like Dr. Deborah Martin. Workers' compensation specialists are equipped to provide you with the right documentation and medical evidence for filing a claim, and as a general surgery doctor, Dr. Martin is also able to treat your injury.

How can I prevent injuries in my workplace?

Safety should always be a top priority for employers and employees alike. No matter what your job is, these tips can help you ensure your workplace is safe:

  • Keep it clean and organized: A clutter-free workspace can significantly reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls. Regularly clean up spills, remove debris, and ensure walkways are clear of obstructions to maintain a safe environment.
  • Stay up-to-date on training: Knowing how to safely perform the tasks of your job, from equipment usage, safety protocols, and emergency procedures, can help you and the people around you stay safe.
  • Use proper protective equipment: Depending on the nature of your job, personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, safety goggles, hard hats, or steel-toed boots may be necessary to prevent injuries.
  • Take regular breaks: Fatigue can increase your risk of accidents and injuries. Be sure to take regular breaks to rest and recharge, which will help you stay alert and focused throughout the day.

Dr. Martin will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that takes into account all aspects of your recovery, including how soon you can safely return to work.
