Injury or Illness
What to do if you are injured at work or exposed to something potentially infectious
Seek medical treatment as soon as possible! University employees may choose their treating provider, but we do recommend the nearest HealthPartners Occupational and Environmental Medicine (HPOEM) location to ensure timely treatment and to reduce the chance of billing issues. It is recommended that you call ahead at (952) 883-6999 to reduce wait times. If you cannot get through by phone, proceed directly to the clinic.

Report Your Incident
Employees must report work-related injuries/illnesses as soon as possible to their supervisor and complete the electronic University of Minnesota First Report of Injury Form (E-FROI) online within 8 business hours after injury. This is required to ensure appropriate follow-up and eligibility for Workers Compensation coverage.
If exposure has occurred during work on an Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) protocol, an Incident Report Form must be submitted to the IBC.
For additional information on reporting Workers Compensation Related Injuries, see Human Resources' Workers Compensation Policy.
