Accidents, Incidents, and Workers' Compensation
The University seeks to provide a safe and secure working and learning environment and strives to meet the goal of having zero accidents occur.
When accidents do occur, the prompt reporting of injuries or illnesses related to University employment or activities is essential to ensure that the person(s) involved have received the proper medical care, the situation causing the injury or illness has been identified, and the appropriate documentation has been completed.
Prompt reporting allows University personnel to investigate the causes of these injuries or illnesses and to recommend preventive measures to eliminate or minimize the risk of similar occurrences. Accident reporting procedures that should be followed may vary depending on whether the person involved is a University employee, student, a person not associated with the University, or if a University vehicle is involved in an accident.
