On July 1st, 2006, The University phased out the paper version of the Accident Report Form and replaced it with an Internet based application.
The new Accident Reporting System is similar to the paper version. The system has enhanced features to enable department heads or administrators to view the status of all current accidents reported by their department. Each department must designate an account administrator to establish who will be given rights to create accident reports for their respective departments.
To assist departments with transitioning into the new system, REHS is available to scheduled short training sessions (approximately 1.5hrs) for department managers, supervisors and/or forepersons creating and approving reports.
Please call REHS to schedule a session at your convenience. If you have any questions or concern, feel free to contact me at 848-445-2550 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accident investigations are an integral part of the University's health and safety program. All accidents and "near miss" accidents must be investigated. Employees are required to report all accidents or "near miss" accidents to their supervisor immediately.
