Incident Reporting

 

An incident is any unplanned event that either results in personal injury or damage to property; equipment; or the environment, or has the potential to result in such consequences (near-miss).

Incident reports are to be submitted within 24 hours when any of the following occur on campus:

Immediately report incidents resulting in severe injury, illness, exposure, property damage, or death to University Police, 814-732-2911, and the Office of Safety and Risk Management, 814-732-2709, for further action.

Reporting an incident allows the Office of Safety and Risk Management to:
