A brief description of the methodology used to track and calculate the number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health :
We are not required to formally report any recordables as a state university. The EH&S office receives and logs all injury reports. These reports are logged into two separate categories:
1. Employee injuries
2. Students/visitors/non-employee injuries
These are reviewed quarterly to identify trends. Any trends identified are address by implementation of a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) or a Job Safety Analysis (JSA). Any issues outside of a trend that need attention for the protection of our campus community are discussed with the University Safety Committee and a decision is made and implemented.
Annual number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health per 100 FTE employees:
