Accident/Incident Investigations

Accident/Incident investigations are important tools used to identify safety concerns, determine how an incident could have been prevented and to make recommendations to prevent recurrences.  Departments must follow the Risk Management accident/incident investigation procedures.

Department Safety Coordinators are responsible to review the investigation report for accuracy and completeness.  In addition, the Department Safety Coordinator will collaborate with the Supervisor/Manager in developing recommendations, taking corrective action to prevent future recurrences, and elevating safety concerns to the Department Head.  Accident/Incident Investigations are forwarded to Risk Management within 5 working days for record keeping and program monitoring. 

Injury Data Management

Risk Management is responsible for maintaining information on all reported accidents/incidents through the Workers compensation management database.  Periodic loss reports are generated from this system and forwarded to departments. OSHA 300 logs and OSHA 300a postings are generated from this system and are provided to departments for posting annually, as required by OSHA regulations and upon request.
