Reporting Work-related Injuries and Illnesses
Work related injury or illness must be reported to the Office of Risk Management using the form Employers First Report of Accidental Injury or Occupational Illness. The information on this form may initiate an accident investigation by EHS, where applicable and will provide the information needed for Workers Compensation Insurance and the OSHA Log of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses. Forms are available through McCosh Health Center, your department manager, or Risk Management.
Office of Risk Management
The Office of Risk Management is responsible for all risk management and insurance functions, and the financial management of the University's employee health plans, disability plans and the Student Health Plan.
The Employee Health Office, a Clinical Services unit of Princeton University Health Services, is available to all full-time and part-time university faculty and staff for work-related injury or illness, return to work evaluation after a disability, review of restrictions and various health monitoring programs. The goals are to promote, protect and restore the employee’s health within the context of a safe and healthy work environment.
Accident Investigation Procedure
Accidents occur when hazards escape detection during preventive measures, such as a job or process safety analysis, when hazards are not obvious, or as the result of combinations of circumstances that were difficult to foresee. A thorough accident investigation may identify previously overlooked physical, environmental, or process hazards, the need for new or more extensive safety training, or unsafe work practices. The primary focus of any accident investigation should be the determination of the facts surrounding the incident and the lessons that can be learned to prevent future similar occurrences.
