A University employee is an individual who is compensated for their activities at the University. Compensation may include payment or other forms of compensation for example room and board. Examples of student employees include: Resident Assistants, Teaching Assistants, Funded Graduate Students, Miscellaneous Wage Student Employees, etc.
Employees are required to advise their departmental supervisors of all injuries and illnesses incurred during the course of their employment at the University. A First Report of Injury must be submitted to Juanita Crook in Labor Relations as soon as practical and a copy must be sent to the Department of Environmental Health and Safety (DEHS).
Departmental safety committees will assure that an investigation is conducted for all injuries that occur within their department. Investigations will be performed by the employee’s immediate supervisor or a Departmental safety committee member. The investigation findings are submitted on the Injury /Illness Loss Investigation Report to DEHS with a copy sent to Labor Relations.
Follow-up on corrective actions listed on these forms shall be the responsibility of the employee’s supervisor. DEHS will review the injury/illness report and investigation and conduct additional follow up as needed.
