Faculty, Staff, Graduate Assistants, Student Worker Injuries

Employees must report work-related injuries to their supervisor or other person designated by your department as soon as possible but no later than one business day after an injury. 

Supervisors or a department’s designated staff must report all work-related injuries to the Office of Compliance and Risk Management (OCRM) on the same business day notification of an injury is received using the online reporting form provided on the workplace injury page. Reporting a work-related injury also starts the Worker's Compensation claims process with Human Resource Management (HRM).
