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

All incidents reported to UVA are entered into MC Innovations’ web portal and the MC Innovations team processes the claims for the State of Virginia Department of Human Resource Management. DHRM tracks the incidents, and calculates based on the state’s fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). The data above, however, has been calculated based on the 2020 calendar year, based on DHRM data.
