In the event of an injury

In the event of injury; please do the following:

  • Report to the BLET and BNSF when you are injured and before you go to a doctor, if possible.  This will keep you in compliance with the BNSF reporting guidelines.
  • It is recommended that you do not sign a medical release.
  • See the doctor of your choice and tell them you are not under workmans comp.
  • You are only required to report the injury and fill out the injury report form, nothing else.  (Keep a copy of the injury report form.)
  • Do not allow any BNSF officer to be involved in your medical treatment in any way.
  • Contact a union official.  Phone Numbers (requires login) | Email
