Accidents at Work

Tips For Accident Prevention

  • Follow all policies and procedures for the job at hand
  • Use all required Personal Protective Equipment
  • Report all Safety concerns, big or small, to your supervisor, the Environmental Health and Safety Department or the Accident Investigation Committee
  • Protect your co-workers; if you witness someone working in an unsafe manner do not be afraid to correct them. Their error could result in your injury.

Accident Reporting

  • Brochures are now available to provide guidance on the reporting of accidents.
  • If an accident occurs, report it immediately to your supervisor, regardless of how big or small it may be
  • Complete either the "Employee Accident Report" or the "Student and Visitor Accident Report" (CS-13) and return it to Human Resources.
  • Seek medical attention if needed

Safety Concerns may be reported anonymously by completing a form and returning it to Environmental Health and Safety in Sibley 421. All reports will be investigated.

Forms

Note: Some of these forms require the latest version of Acrobat Reader, which is available as a free download.
