Accident Reporting

For serious or life-threatening injuries requiring immediate medical attention. Please call 911 for emergency medical care and notify the employee’s supervisor if they are not already aware.

Accidents can and do happen at work. All Illinois State University employees injured during the course of employment must notify their immediate supervisor as soon as possible but no later than 45 days after the injury occurs. Employees and their supervisors can contact the Workers' Compensation Coordinator in Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) at (309) 438-2007 regarding any employment injuries, work- related illnesses, and how to report them. EHS is the University’s contact for accident reporting and any follow up if needed.

The following pages will assist employees and supervisors with what needs to be reported, how to report an injury, where to seek medical treatment, and any other matters related to injury/illness reporting.
