Incident Reporting

UVM encourages the reporting of all injuries and near misses in the workplace. This helps the Risk Management department to follow up with injured persons swiftly so they can help them get the proper care that they might need. Reporting also helps to prevent similar accidents from taking place in the future. 


If you are a UVM employee who has had a work-related injury or illness (a condition that develops over time, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendinitis), report it immediately to your Supervisor. Call 9-1-1 if immediate emergency care is needed. UVM Rescue will be on scene within minutes. Employees who do need emergency care should report to Concentra Medical Center for treatment since they are the occupational health administrator for the University. They are located at 7 Fayette Road in South Burlington. Their phone number is 658-5756. 

Then, fill out an employer's First Report of Injury form. For more information about Worker's responsibilities and the Supervisor's responsibilities regarding incident reporting, please visit the Risk Management Department website describing the UVM procedures for On The Job Injury Reporting.

The completed First Report of Injury form should be emailed immediately to: or faxed to 656-8682. Risk Management must send the Report to the Department of Labor and Industry within 72 hours of the date of injury and UVM is subject to a penalty for non-compliance.


To report a non-employee injury and/or property damage, please use the Incident Report form rather than a First Report of Injury.  Email or fax the completed Incident Report to the Risk Management department, as stated above, for follow up.
