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 work under the Federal Employers Liability Act

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.
