Medical Assistance

Seek emergency medical assistance:

  •  Life threatening injuries call ‘911’ and ‘5555’
    (Electric shock, heart attack, loss of consciousness, fainting, serious bleeding, and difficulty breathing, broken bones, whenever medical transportation is needed
  • Non-emergency injuries
    • During business hours (8:00 am - 4:30 pm.) - go to SLAC Medical Dept. (B028) Business Hours
    • During non-business hours - seek care at one of the clinics below.


Accident and Injury Follow up

  • Within 24 hours of the Injury:  Injured employee must complete and submit an Occupational Injury/Illness Report: Employee First Report of Injury (SU-17A).  This form is usually completed at SLAC Medical and its completion is required even if no medical treatment is sought.  The purpose of the SU-17A is to document the injury and begin the notification and investigation process.
  • Within 3-Business days of the Injury: The injured employee’s supervisor must submit the Incident Investigation form (SU-17B) to the workers’ compensation administrator. Copies of SU-17B are sent to MFD ES&H Coordinator and also kept with the supervisor.
    • MFD ES&H Coordinator will assist the supervisor in drafting the SU-17B.
    • MFD ES&H Coordinator maybe required, as determined by the ES&H Incident Investigation Program manager (IIPM), to perform a causal analysis using the Apollo RealityCharting tool, and develop corrective actions within 30-Business days of the incident.  The causal analysis report, if ready,  may also be reviewed at the time of the incident follow-up meeting.
  • Traffic accidents, resulting in damage to government property, including structures and vehicles must be investigated by the supervisor and MFD ES&H Coordinator, recorded on a SU-17B form and submitted to the IIPM within 3-Business days of the accident.
  • Non-Injury accidents, not otherwise requiring submittal to the IIPM, maybe investigated, corrective actions developed and recorded on a SU-17B form by MFD ES&H Coordinator.


Within one week of any safety or spill incident involving MFD personnel, a meeting will be held with the supervisor, a MFD ES&H Coordinator, and possibly the Department Head.  This meeting will be coordinated by the MFD ES&H Coordinator
