Treatment for a lab- or work-related injury

Even if you think the injury is too minor to do so, you must report the injury to your supervisor who will assist you in seeking medical treatment. When seeking treatment remember to bring MSDS &/or other safety info with you. Please notify medical staff that the treatment is due to a workplace injury or illness, so that they can initiate the proper paper work.
