Injured Worker Frequently Asked Questions
The Orting School Board recognizes that safety and health standards should be incorporated into all aspects of the operations of the District. Accidents and Injuries must be reported to your supervisor, Human Resources Department and Puget Sound Workers' Compensation Trust (PSWCT) immediately.
All accident and injury (workers compensation) claims are administered through Puget Sound Workers' Compensation Trust (PSWCT) and not through the State of Washington, Labor and Industries (L&I) Workers Compensation program. When seeking medical attention please notify the healthcare provider of the claim provider (PSWCT) and your claim number to avoid billing concerns.
There is a process for submitting an Accident/Incident Report form. Accident/Incident Report forms are now submitted via computer online to the Puget Sound Workers' Compensation Trust. Whether you choose to seek medical attention or not you are required to submit an Accident/Incident Report. To assist you, please review the Employee Guide - Reporting an Accident/Incident. Once your Report form is received by PSWCT, it will be forwarded to your supervisor for review and completion.
If you indicated on your Accident/Incident Report form you have or are planning to seek medical treatment for your injury, you will be automatically routed to a screen to complete information and submit your work injury claim. The District cannot provide a claim number until the online process is complete. If you do not have access to a computer while at work, please check in with your building secretary or supervisor for assistance. You may also use a personal computer and/or public computer with internet access. Submitting your claim and obtaining a claim number before seeking medical treatment is always best. However, if your injury requires immediate medical attention, submitting your claim and obtaining a claim number may be done after treatment is received.
After completing the online claim process, PSWCT will email you your claim number and any additional information you may need.
If you have general questions regarding workers' compensation benefits, please read A Guide to Workers' Compensation and Benefits. For specific claim questions after filing, please contact your claims adjuster with Puget Sound Workers' Compensation Trust at 253-778-7667 or the district contact.
