A brief description of the methodology used to track and calculate the number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health :
Injuries/illnesses must still be documented on the Georgia Tech Injury and Illness Report form. Copies of this form must be sent to the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Office. If medical treatment is necessary, the departmental supervisor must report the injury/illness to the State Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) by calling the hotline within 24 hours of the injury. All occupational injuries are reviewed to ensure that they are categorized appropriately according to OSHA guidelines.
