SSM 305–07: Injury on the Job
To protect the health and safety of student employees and to provide basic medical coverage for work-related injuries and illnesses
Arizona Revised Statutes § 23–901
In accordance with the Arizona Workers’ Compensation Act, the university provides specific benefits to student employees who are injured while performing work-related duties or who incur work-related illnesses. These benefits include:
A student employee who is injured or becomes ill while performing work-related duties should report the injury or illness to his or her supervisor to ensure proper handling of the claim and, if necessary, seek medical attention immediately. The supervisor must complete the necessary reports and forward them to Human Resources within five days from the date of injury.
A student employee who incurs a work-related injury or illness should report directly to the student health facility at his or her campus for initial treatment, unless the illness or injury is serious or the university facility is not open. When a student employee is treated by a private physician or at a hospital, the attending physician must sign a release statement. The student employee must present the release statement to his or her supervisor before returning to work.
