Since you were injured on the job, you should file a workers' compensation claim.  Your employer's HR department can provide you with the appropriate forms for filing your claim. 
As for not being provided with safety attire, you can file a confidential complaint about your unsafe working conditions with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) www.osha.gov
