Resources for Injured Employees

NEW!!! Effective July 1, 2013, Alameda County is switching to York Risk Services Group as its Workers’ Compensation TPA and implementing a nurse-staffed injury hotline to report industrial injuries and initiate the filing of a workers’ compensation claim. Our new claims system is paperless.

If you are injured on the job, CLICK HERE for information on reporting your injury and obtaining medical treatment, effective July 1, 2013.

IN AN EMERGENCY CALL 911 OR GO TO THE NEAREST EMERGENCY ROOM.

Forms Needed if Injury Requires More Than First Aid Treatment

  • DWC1 FORM (PDF - 148kb)*: Complete this form if your physician indicates that your injury requires medical treatment beyond first aid or certifies disability beyond your work shift at the time of your injury. Complete the employee section of this form and submit to your supervisor.
  • FIRST FILL PHARMACY FORM (PDF - 437kb)*: Give this notice to any pharmacy listed on the form to expedite the processing of your prescriptions.
  • WORK STATUS REPORT (PDF - 156kb)*: Bring this form to each medical appointment. Your medical provider must complete at every appointment, and you must provide a copy to your supervisor/WCL.
