Union Township made a decision in 2002 to change our MCO to…

“ Sheakley UniComp. Since then we have realized that our only regret is that we did not make this move sooner. We now have a much greater appreciation for Sheakley’s knowledge and expertise. Union Township highly recommends the service that Sheakley provides and they will definitely be an asset to your organization. ”
Matt T., Service Director, Union Township Service Department
What to Do if an Injury Occurs

Once a work related injury occurs the employee must immediately notify their employer of the injury.

If the injury is not an emergency, the employer should refer the injured worker to the online Provider Lookup to find a physician nearby. Within 24 hours of seeking medical treatment, the employer or injured worker must contact Sheakley UniComp to report an injury occurrence or complete the BWC First Report of Injury form (FROI).

Please fax the FROI, with the injured worker’s signature and any medical documentation to
1-888-626-2667 or 1-513-326-8005
or email the FROI to
