Accidents & Injuries

All employees, visitors, students and volunteers are expected to do what they can to prevent an accident or injury; however, you must know what to do when they occur.

 

Reporting

When an accident, injury or "near miss' occurs, you must immediately notify your supervisor.

If medical care or security are required, notify Public Safety at 503-494-4444.

In all cases, the incident must be reported online through the Worker and Student Incident Reporting System (WSIRS). 

Questions about accidents, injuries and workers' compensation claims may be routed to the Workers' Compensation Team in Risk Management.

 

Prevention

OHSU employs safety professionals to help prevent accidents and injuries at work.  These professionals are available at no charge to help fine tune your work area or department.  E-mail a safety expert or contact by phone at 503-494-7795.
