Reporting 3rd Party Incidents

  • The Notice of Incident report is a confidential document that is for the exclusive use of the University. It should not be shared with anyone except the employee’s supervisor and the Risk Management office.
  • Complete the Notice of Incident as soon as possible, when it is easier to collect all the information and while details are still fresh in everyone’s mind.
  • Incidents should be reported as soon as possible.
  • Obtain contact information of individuals involved in incident and take photographs of the incident location.
  • Obtain the names and contact information of any witnesses.
  • If a student or visitor asks whom they can contact to talk about an incident, or indicates they want to make a claim against the University, advise them to contract the campus Risk Management office.
