EMPLOYEE OR STUDENT EMPLOYEE INJURIES:

 

For life-threatening injuries, call 9-911. If injuries are not life threatening, ALWAYS contact Human Resources at extension 2117. If medical assistance is needed, they will give you directions on where treatment should be given.

 

Always complete an Employee Accident Report, found on the Human Resources Family Page.

 

ALL OTHER INJURIES (NON-EMPLOYEES AND STUDENTS):

 

1. For life threatening injuries, call 9-911. Otherwise, seek medical attention based on common sense and the desire of the injured person.

 

2. Do NOT make a commitment on behalf of the University, or indicate we will pay medical expenses.

 

3. If appropriate, take action to prevent the chance of the accident happening again.

 

4. Write down all information about the incident:
