Accident and Incident Reporting

All accidents and incidents must be reported immediately in accordance with University policies and procedures. Failure to report an accident may result in loss of Workers Compensation benefits. Failure to report unsafe conditions may result in future injuries and/or property damage. The Tennessee Division of Claims requires that ALL personal injury incidents be reported.  Even if the incident does not result in medical treatment, the employee and/or supervisor must notify the state.  Additionally, any event involving a hazard (i.e. wet or slick floors, broken pavement, etc.) should also be reported.  Please see the website https://riskmanagement.tennessee.edu/accident-incident-reporting/ for detailed instructions on what to do.
