One of the very first steps that you (as an injured worker) should take after suffering an on-the-job injury or illness is to notify your employer about the incident.

Otherwise, it should be provided to your employer as soon as possible after you obtain emergency medical care.
One might be tempted to think that merely mentioning to one’s employer that a workplace injury or illness has occurred would be sufficient.
