A brief description of the methodology used to track and calculate the number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health :

If an employee becomes ill or injured in a work-related incident, they and their supervisor must fill out an incident report. The employee must report any injury to their supervisor/acting supervisor before the end of their shift. Supervisors must investigate the incident thoroughly and submit the form within one working day to Human Resources. Staff from the Safety department track the incident reports, calculate the number of recordable incidents, and create a monthly report which is shared with members of the University on an internal website as well as on a monitor in the Facilities Management main building.
