Incident and Accident Reporting

Types of Incidents

Near Miss

A near miss is an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage – but had the potential to do so. Only a fortunate break in the chain of events prevented an injury, fatality or damage

All near misses should be reported to Environmental Health and Safety using the Incident Report Form

If the near miss resulted in a chemical, radioactive or biological spill please contact the Department of Environmental Health and Safety at 32999 and complete the Spill Report Form.

First Aid

If any person (employee, student, visitor) only requires first aid as a result of an incident, it should be reported to Environmental Health and Safety by completing the Incident Report Form


If an incident results in:

  • Employee obtaining health care such as hospital or physician (Not first aid)
  • Lost Time
  • Requires modified duties at less than regular pay
  • Requires modified duties at regular pay for more than 7 calendar days after accident
