Incident Investigation Report
The investigation of accidents and significant near misses is an essential part of the University’s accident prevention program. A thorough investigation reconstructing the chain of events leading up to the incident identifies unsafe acts and conditions requiring corrective action. An accident investigation and subsequent implementation of the corrective action minimizes the potential for future accidents.
Supervisors must complete an Incident Investigation Report if one or more of the following conditions are met:
- The employee receives medical treatment.
- The employee is unable to work the next full or subsequent shift(s) because of the injury or illness.
- Events and conditions involving a significant near miss where injury or illness would have been serious.
