A brief description of when and why the workplace health and safety baseline was adopted:

The institutional baseline was determined based on AAHSE STARS criteria for best practices and availability of consistent data..

A brief description of the institution’s workplace health and safety initiatives:

In an effort to maintain a safe and healthy campus and work environment, illnesses and injuries that occur on campus or during the course of employment with IUPUI must be reported. It is the intent of IUPUI to minimize illnesses and injuries by correcting identified causes when appropriate and feasible.

Injuries are reported as:
1) Non-emergency
2) Emergency/after hours

Emergency Medical Attention:
If you need immediate medical assistance or are unable to escort yourself to IUPUI Campus Health call 911 for ambulance assistance.

After hours:
Employees who are injured on the job during hours in which the IUPUI Campus Health clinic is closed (nights after 5:00 p.m. and before 7:30 a.m. and weekends) have three options for medical treatment depending on the nature of the injury:

Emergency - If the injury requires emergency medical treatment the employee must go to the IU Health Methodist Hospital Emergency Room. Call 911 for ambulance assistance. Emergencies include but are not limited to: difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness, chest pains, chemical spill exposures, broken bones, severe cuts.

Immediate Treatment - If the injury requires immediate medical attention that is non-emergent, employees are required to seek treatment at the IU Health-Occupational Services Park Fletcher clinic located at 5603 West Raymond Street.

Next Business Day - If the injury is minor and can be tolerated until the next business day, employees are required to go to the IUPUI Campus Health clinic located in Coleman Hall the next day.
