Incident and Accident Reporting

Minor Incidents

Incident Report Form

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 (PDF 445KB).

Spill Report Form

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

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 above.
