Employee Wallet Cards

Help your employees report all work-related injuries to you

About the cards

If one of your employees has an accident at work, do they tell you right away? Unfortunately, many Washington employees are unaware that under state law (RCW 51.28.010 (www.leg.wa.gov)) they have a duty to immediately report work-related accidents to their employer. State law (RCW 51.28.025 (www.leg.wa.gov)) requires employers to immediately report those injuries and occupational diseases to L&I if the employee received medical treatment, was disabled from work, or died.

L&I developed the FileFast wallet card for workers (F242‑400‑000) to help employers talk to their employees about what to do if they have an accident at work.

The FileFast wallet card for workers (F242‑400‑000) makes it easy for you to provide your employees with the information they need in a compact and convenient card. They'll know right away who to contact if they have an on-the-job injury or disease. Remember that employees may choose any health-care provider who is qualified to treat an injury for their first visit. For ongoing care, they must be treated by a doctor in the L&I medical network. Find network providers at Lni.wa.gov/FindADoc.

Please use this opportunity to also discuss the importance of working safely in order to prevent accidents.
