Employees are required to advise their departmental supervisors of all injuries and illnesses incurred during the course of their employment at the University. Supervisors will also work with the employee to complete Workers’ Compensation reports (click link for forms).

Human Resources will forward a copy of the First Report of Injury and the Supervisor's Accident Analysis and Prevention Report to the Risk Management Officer, who will contact the employee and his or her supervisor in order to conduct an incident analysis.
