A brief description of when and why the workplace health and safety baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):

Tracking and reporting of recordable injuries and occupational diseases (recordables) was centralized and standardized within the area of Risk Management at UW-Madison in Fiscal Year (FY) 2012. While FY07 was chosen as the standard baseline year for the STARS report, we were not able to obtain reliable recordable data from FY07 (data obtained appeared to overestimate recordables). Therefore we determined it was better to use the oldest reliable data we could obtain (FY13).


Percentage reduction in workplace injuries and occupational disease cases per FTE employee from baseline:
11.95

Number of workplace injuries and occupational disease cases per 100 FTE employees, performance year:
