All accidents occurring on campus are reported to EOHS by way of an accident report form. The University safety officer investigates each accident to determine if it was the result of an unsafe act or an unsafe condition. Working closely with departmental supervisors, the safety officer determines what type of corrective action must be taken to eliminate the hazard that resulted in the accident.
EOHS maintains a computer database of all accidents that have occurred on campus. Accidents are categorized according to the department, type of accident, lost time, etc. The department uses this database to help determine accident trends and problem areas on campus. EOHS works closely with all departments to anticipate, recognize, and eliminate all hazards in the workplace before they result in an accident. EOHS encourages all students, employees, and visitors to campus to assist in making the campus a safer environment by reporting any potential hazard to the departmental office. EOHS is responsible for managing all property, liability and automobile insurance campus wide. Workers' Compensation Claims are also managed by the EOHS office.
