The State of Alaska, Division of Workers’ Compensation has made changes to their First Report of Injury Forms.
The employee and the employer will be required to fill out separate forms to first report an occupational injury or illness. Alaska Workers Compensation Board (AWCB) confirms these new forms should be used for all new injury reports starting July 22, 2013.
On the old form (Form 07-6101 Rev 08-2012) the employee and employer sections were both on the same page. The new forms are:
07-6100 -- Employees Report of Occupational Injury or Illness to the Employer
07-6101 – Employer Report of Occupational Injury or Illness to Division of Workers’ Compensation
The State also issuedan instruction sheet on the use of these forms and advises employers that items #13, 15, 16, 17 on form 6101 can be completed by APEI, anditem #14 will be populated by the AWCB upon acceptance of the claim.
APEI felt it was important to provide all members immediate awareness and access to these forms, so you can become familiar with these new requirements.
Please make sure you send both new forms to APEI for our handling.
