Emergent Medical Treatment
Effective October 1, 2008, injured workers may file an application for emergent medical treatment based on “irreparable harm.” Once an employer receives service of this application, a response must be made within five calendar days. Therefore, it is critical that you immediately phone your claims administrator upon receipt of this application.
Electronic Claim Filing
New Jersey requires the electronic filing of workers’ compensation reports. The First Report of Injury (FROI) can be downloaded using the following links. Complete this form on all cases where the employee sought more than first aid treatment regardless of whether the employee lost time from work.

OSHA Form 301 Report
The claims administrator will make the electronic filing to the State and you will receive a copy. This FROI copy can also substitute for the OSHA Form 301 Report. The FROI form will contain an OSHA Log Number that you can use as the case number for the OSHA Form 300 Log. Please note that this case number is not the same as the claim number assigned by your claims administrator.
