Additional documentation to support the submission:

Data for this credit was retrieved from IU University Director of Environmental Health and Safety.

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) reports workplace injuries and occupational disease cases to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as numbers of incidents out of total employees (who worked for the University for any length of time, and for any number of hours per week, full or part-time, including student workers). Therefore, the number of "employees" of IUS, for consistency with EHS and OSHA is 771 in the performance year. The above figures represent incidents of an annual average of 771 employees (including student & PT employees) working 1,603,537hours. This is the figure we have used rather than the Pre-5 figure, which comes from the IU Faculty + Staff Headcount (excluding student hourly).
Data provided is from the calendar year 2020, while full-time equivalent data in Pre-5 is from FY2020 (July 1 2019-June 30 2020).
