Safety & Workers' Compensation

HEALTH & SAFETY: The University has a campus wide Injury and Illness Prevention Program to assure a safe and healthful work environment for its employees. You are responsible for your personal safety, knowing and complying with the applicable policies, procedures, and work rules, and promptly reporting serious dangers to your supervisor or campus safety official. Talk with your supervisor about safety regulations and safety training opportunities relevant to your job duties. For your information, campus emergency procedures and a listing of campus safety and emergency services are located in the front of the Campus Directory. In addition, the campus Environmental Health and Safety web site provides extensive information about safe work practices and safety-training programs offered on campus. If you work at a computer for more than 4 hours a day or 20 hours a week, it is recommended that you register to take a class on ergonomics.

ACCIDENT REPORTS: If you sustain a job-related injury or illness, you must report this to your supervisor immediately. State law requires you and your supervisor to complete appropriate forms available on the Office of Risk Services website within 24 hours of the occurrence of any job-related injury or illness.

Inform your Personnel Coordinator as soon as possible if you sustain a job-related injury or illness.
