A few reminders about on the job injuries:
• Always tell your employer if you are injured on the job. Injury symptoms
may not be fully apparent until later. For example a head injury. You
may feel fine, but later experience headaches, vision problems, and
drowsiness, all of which could indicate a concussion.
• According to Washington State’s Department of Labor and Industries,
you have the right to choose your own doctor. You may see a company
doctor if you wish.
• Also, according to L & I you have the right to decide who, if anyone, you
want to accompany you to the doctor. You have the right to decline to
have the company nurse or any company representative accompany you
to the hospital, doctor, or other medical visit.
• You have the same rights and benefits if your company is self-insured.
• Your employer may not discriminate or retaliate against you for filing a

Heart Attack Signs
Fast action is your best weapon against a heart attack. Why? Because
Clot-busting drugs and other artery-opening treatments can prevent or
limit damage to the heart – but they need to be given immediately after symptoms begin. The sooner they are started, the more good they will do and the greater the chances are for survival and a full recovery.
Know the signs
Pay attention to these common heart attack warning signs:
Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back.
Discomfort in other areas of the upper body
This may be felt in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
Shortness of breath
This often occurs with or before chest discomfort.
Other signs may include:
Ø Breaking out in cold sweat
FAST ACTION SAVES LIVES
Call 9-1-1 immediately if you have symptoms!
If you or someone you are with begins to have chest discomfort, especially with one or more symptoms of a heart attack, CALL 9-1-1 right away. Don’t wait!
If you are having symptoms and cannot call 9-1-1 have someone else call for you.
Do not drive to any fire station as the firefighters may be out on calls and there may be no one there to help you. Never drive yourself to the hospital unless you have absolutely no other choice.
