Toolbox Talk - Injuries at work

Max People Health & Safety Bulletin

Report all injuries

When an employee suffers an injury at work and does not report it straight away it causes a lot of problems for all parties involved.

First and foremost, we don't want the same thing happening to someone else and we may also need to change how a task is being completed. 

Max People has a process to follow when injuries occur, as will the company you are working with. It is important for all parties that this/or their procedure is followed. 

What should I do if I have injured myself at work?

  • Inform your Supervisor straightway.
  • Complete an incident report (if able to do so) 
  • If you need to be taken to a medical centre. The Supervisor will organise for this to happen or call Max People's Health & Safety Officer
  • A senior member of Max People or a representative of the company you are working under will attend the medical centre with you.
  • Dependent on the injury 'Light duties' may be discussed with the Doctor
  • A copy of the medical certificate and/or ACC form is to be forwarded to the office 

What do I do if I have an injury at work but I don’t feel the effects until I get home?

  • Notify your Recruitment Consultant
  • Call an after hour’s medical centre for advice.                                                                                                                                                                    
  • If recommended seek medical assistance.
  • Inform your Recruitment Consultant and immediate Supervisor of the outcome of the medical visit.
  • Send medical certificate/ ACC form to the office
  • Complete an Incident Report for the Health & Safety team as soon as practicable
