The Department of Labor (DOL) provides a complete list of OWCP forms on their website. Generally, forms should be printed, filled out, and then submitted through your agency to DOL. Always keep a copy of what you submit, and make sure you have proof that you submitted the form. Here are links to some commonly requested forms:
CA-1: Federal Notice of Traumatic Injury and Claim for Continuance of Compensation
Use this form to report a traumatic injury. Complete the employee portion of the form and turn it in to your supervisor no later than 30 days following an injury. Make sure you get a "receipt of notice" from your supervisor.
