Workplace Injury and Illness

If you have a work-related injury or illness that is serious in nature, seek medical attention immediately.


Report work-related injury or illness, as soon as possible, to your immediate supervisor or their alternate and request them to complete the Employer's First Report of Work Injury or Illness Form required by the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

See the following Panel of Approved Providers. In addition, the authorization Form can be completed at the University Health Center or prior to arrival for expediency.


The supervisor of the injured employee needs to complete the Supervisor Accident Investigation Report Form (fillable download).

Complete both previously mentioned forms and submit them to the Risk Management department via email at

If you suspect claim fraud, please call the KeyRisk Fraud Hotline at 866.841.1044 or submit the information in the anonymous Report a Safety Concern Form (online).
