Things you shouldn't have to say at work, Part 18


(Shouted after getting nailed in the head twice within an hour, by two different colleagues -- the first receiving a plastic board to the temple, sending my glasses flying and me nearly to the floor; the second an elbow to the top of the skull while bending over to retrieve something from a low shelf)

Does worker's comp cover concussions?

Jay, two questions:

1. Do you work with Leftists?
2. Do they know who you are?

Yep, Workers Comp covers most injuries incurred during the execution of your duties. THe second one might be up for argument, but the first one, IMO as someone who is not a lawyer, should be--provided it was an accidental injury & not an attack, and it was reported promptly.

Technically, all injuries, including papercuts, are supposed to be reported, recorded, and reported to OSHA. Obviously it doesn't happen...just thought you should know.

If they smack your noggin again and you start picking up radio signals with your fillings or you develop X-ray vision, for God's sake don't get hit in the head after that, because your special powers will be gone.

Drew E.:

Not any more..you see the workman's comp procedure has been gutted...you know "every injury is faked." Remember you have the right and should seek an opinion outside of the shill whose income is derived from your company. Good luck and outthink their attempts at intimidation.

John W.:

Yes, workers compensation will cover any injury that takes place in the work place environment as long as you are doing a work related function. You must file a claim within thirty days (or other time limit set by your state laws) and you will have to go to a physician that will be chosen by your employer. The sooner the better. Depending upon the rules of your company you might have to provide urine and blood samples. These incidents should be reported to your company safety coordinator or whomever is handling the WC/safety portion of your business. If your employer has ten or more employees, and is not an exempt enterprise/occupation, these injuries will have to be recorded on the OSHA form 300 and 301. Because there was no death involved it does not have to be reported to OSHA. Should a work place injury result in a death that incident MUST be reported to OSHA within eight hours.

Just for the record, YOU are getting paid LESS because your boss has to pay people to throw shit around the office.

When I think about how those poor castaways could have gotten off the island if Gilligan had only avoided the second hit!

Thanks for the memory. That was one of my favorites - but my very favorite episode had to be "Neither a borrower nor a lender be....."

James Cloninger:

"Think twice, and take this good advice from me,
Guard that old solvency.
There's just one other thing you ought to do:
To thine own self be true."

Gilligan as Hamlet...that's comedy gold there, folks.
