3250 Reporting Accidents

Policy Type: 

The Board of Trustees directs that all reasonable efforts be made to ensure a safe learning and working environment for the students and employees of the College. To that end and to the end that legitimate employee claims for worker's compensation be expedited, the Board requires that accidents be reported and evaluated. Any accident that results in an injury, requiring medical attention to a student, an employee of the Board, or a visitor to the school, must be reported promptly and in writing to the College Campus Safety Office.

Injured persons shall be referred immediately to appropriate personnel for such medical attention as may be needed.

The injured employee or visitor or the staff member responsible for an injured student shall complete a form that includes the date, time, and place of the incident; the names of persons involved; the nature of the injury to the extent that it is known; and a description of all relevant circumstances.

Any employee of the Board who suffers a job-related injury must report the injury and its circumstances to the division administrator or job supervisor, as appropriate, as soon as possible following the occurrence of the injury preferably by the end of the assigned work shift and in no case later than twenty-four (24) hours following the incident. The failure of an employee to comply with this mandate may result in disciplinary action in accordance with standards set forth in any negotiated collective bargaining agreement or any other College policy.
