If an exposure incident occurs, the affected individual(s) shall inform their supervisor and be referred immediately to the Worker's Health Clinic, located in Clinic A of Boyd Towers. The employee will be evaluated and/or referred for ophthalmologic assessment as appropriate. If the incident occurs outside of regular clinic hours, the employee(s) should be seen in the UIHC Emergency Treatment Center. In addition, the employee must complete a “Worker’s Compensation First Report of Injury or Illness” form. See UIHC Laser Safety Policy for further detail.
