Report an Injury
All injuries must be reported within 24 hours. This is critical so the injury can be promptly investigated and corrective actions can be implemented to prevent reoccurrence. If injured, your first priority is to seek the medical care you need. You should then complete the employee’s portion of the “First Report of Injury” and give the form to their supervisor.
The supervisor should carefully and thoroughly investigate why the injury occurred and complete the supervisor’s portion of the “First Report of Injury.” The completed form should be emailed to both the Environmental, Health, and Safety Office at email@example.com and WorkComp@uillinois.edu.
All workplace injuries and illnesses reported are evaluated to determine if they are work-related by University Health Services in accordance with the criteria in OSHA 29 CFR 1904. All injuries and illnesses deemed work-related are recorded on the OSHA log.
Students and non-employees (members of the public) injured on the UIC campus should complete the Public Injury Report and submit the form to the address found at the bottom of the form.
If you have any questions about this process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
