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 need non-emergency medical attention should report to one of two UVM occupational health services providers:

1) Concentra Medical Center: located at 7 Fayette Road in South Burlington, 802-658-5756, or

2) Champlain Medical Urgent Care: located at 150 Kennedy Drive, South Burlington, 802-448-9370. 

After immediate medical care needs have been taken care of, 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.

Email or fax the First Report of Injury form immediately to: or faxed to 656-8682.  Risk Management is required to report injuries to the Department of Labor and Industry within 72 hours of the date of injury; UVM is subject to a penalty for non-compliance. 

Vermont OSHA reporting requirements can be found on the Vermont Department of Labor site. In 2015 OSHA/VOSHA developed additional reporting requirements.


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.
