Injuries and Incidents

Injured At Work? Report It!

Union College takes employee safety seriously. While we hope that everyone stays safe at all times, sometimes accidents happen, and when they do, employees need to report them to the proper authorities on campus.

The most common accidents that occur are those related to tripping and falling, indoors and out. When an accident does happen, be sure to report it to Campus Safety – within 24 hours – and always let your supervisor know, even if you think you don't require medical attention. It often happens that medical attention isn't needed until well after an accident takes place, and filing claims is more difficult if there is no corresponding accident report.

It is also important that a near miss is reported promptly so corrective actions can be taken. A near miss is an event that could have led to an injury or illness.
