Key Manager Responsibilities Regarding Injury/Incident Reporting

Minor incidents without injury can be a precursor of more serious situations that lead to injury and property damage. An incident investigation provides information that can lead to important preventative measures. Supervisors should contact EH&S as soon as possible after an incident occurs.  A “Notice of Injury” form must be file with Human Resources within 48 hours of the incident, whether or not the employee sees a physician or goes to the hospital.
