All incidents at the College are reported through Occupational Health & Safety Department's online incident reporting program available through Connect, our intranet service for all staff and students. Every incident is report using this tool, any from a cut finger to a "near-miss" that didn't result in any injury. The Safety department reviews every report and acts accordingly. Any reports that result in death, days away from work, restricted work or transfer to another job, medical treatment beyond first aid, loss of consciousness, or significant injury or ill health diagnosed by a physician or other licensed healthcare professional is reported to human resources where it is addressed and logged.
