I downloaded a 1767 to fill out and submit with my other paperwork for the DOL.

So the 1767 is the new CA1?

..if the "flimsy" tray added to your injury then describe the trays and put that in too but leave that out if it did not affect your injury.

Dweaver-
This kind of things you are angry about happen all the time. When you write your statement you can refute what management put on the CA-1 by stating the facts yourself. Exactly how and more describing in detail just how heavy the tray was. I would use your math. Whether or not you "safely" lifted is irrelevant to your claim. In your narrative leave out all anger and emotion...just facts.

Snowed:
On the CA1 that he printed out for me when he entered it into the computer has these few things that I take issue with
"What object or substance directly harmed the employee"? he answered, "Letter Tray approx 5lbs in weight according to employee. This could not be verified since the employee did not immediately report the accident." Anyone who's worked with these 2ft full letter trays know that they can weigh this amnt, If you have this letter tray, packed with approx 700 letters weighing 13 ounces (.8125) times 700 = 5.6875. They are heavy!


Next it is asked about "Potential Hazardous Condition or Equipment" he answered, "98-No defects or hazardous equipment or material" These trays have years of wear and tear on them, they collapse in the middle frequently because of the weight of the letters and the flimsy "material".

Lastly, under "Unsafe Practice(s)" he put "Improper lifting" this is BS to the highest. I was working this LD assignment because I hurt my back in January. I use safe techniques at all times because the job requires it! I also wear a brace around my waist to help keep my posture and because of the strain to the muscle I had...
Maybe I am being anal but I really take offense when someone tries to make me seem like I'm a slacker! He also stated that I didn't have witnesses. I guess a fellow employee coming up to me while I was in tears and asking me if I was okay doesn't apply. Or the union steward I was talking to after it occurred crying, doesn't apply! Wtf, I never told him about any witnesses and he never asked! But he put it in the CA1 as there were none.....

When I receive my file from OWCP, if I do see something to refute, do I send it in at that time or do I wait to see if my case is reopened due to my request for reconsideration?

You've got that right, they don't give one iota of thought to their underlings! I picked up the copy of my CA1 yesterday and was amazed at what he put for some of "management's" answers. That's why anyone reading this: be sure you are with your supervisor when they are filling a CA1 out!!!!!!!!!!!

/m30829 "I am very ticked off the way my supervisor is treating this and me!!"

that statement is counter productive!!!!

all supervisors only care about two things
1 keeping their boss off their back
2 moving the mail out of their area of responsibility

they care NOTHING ABOUT YOU!!!!

Your denial letter should state exactly what you need.

noone listens
I have been reading up on WC rules. I have even read though some ECAB notices. I am trying very hard to get my claim(s) accepted.
No offense taken, but I am not sitting by "hoping" for the best. i am doing what I can because then if I do end up losing in the end, I have no one else. really to blame!
I am very ticked off the way my supervisor is treating this and me!! It's so annoying that when I think I am making some progress I seem to hit another wall. I also agree that I am bouncing, that's because I am trying to line up my ducks, however they are not staying in their perspective "row(s)", plus this whole process is very confusing to those of us that are novices.....just saying....

Dweaver..reading your posts it seems to me you are bouncing all over the place. You are focusing on what your supervisor did or didn't do. The only thing you should be concerned about at this point is getting your claim accepted. The time you have spent here you could have been reading and learning owcp rules. I also found that reading ECAB decisions helped me. They explain why Dr.'s report lack connection, etc. I'm not trying to be offensive, but until you learn what you have done wrong you are your own worst enemy.
