The employing department is responsible for providing student employees with the safety training necessary to ensure that the employee is able to perform the job in a safe manner. Supervisors should refer to Xavier's Policies and Procedures Manual to become familiar with safety policies.  All required personal protective equipment must be provided to the student employee by the employer.

If a student employee is injured while on the job, the injury should be reported immediately to the supervisor. If medical treatment is required, the student should report to Student Health Services. The supervisor must complete an incident report and send it to Campus Police and Student Employment. This report is necessary to ensure that additional medical expenses, if any, are covered by Worker's Compensation. Supervisors can obtain Incident Report Forms from Campus Police. Worker's compensation concerns can be addressed in the Office of Employee Benefits (Human Resources).
