All accidents, involving an injury or not, must be reported to your supervisor immediately. If you are involved in an accident or incident, or are injured on the job, remain calm! If possible, record the following information:
- Time and date of accident/incident
- What occurred
- What you were doing when the accident/incident occurred
- Names, addresses and phone numbers for witnesses, if applicable
For motor vehicle accidents, contact the police if needed. Call 911 if immediate medical attention is necessary. Within 48 hours, submit an Accident/Injury/Incident form. If other drivers were involved in the accident, you must exchange the following information per Missouri law:
- Vehicle license number
- Drivers license number
- Insurance information (this can be found in the glove box of all CMU vehicles)
If this is not possible, give this information to the nearest law enforcement officer or to the nearest police station.
For employee injuries, call 911 if immediate medical attention is necessary. If not, contact Human Resources and medical treatment will be arranged. Within 48 hours, submit an Accident/Injury/Incident form. Employees who fail to notify the University of an injury or illness within a timely manner may jeopardize their ability to receive compensation and other benefits under the workers compensation law, if applicable.
If you were a witness to an accident or injury, complete the Witness Statement and submit it to Human Resources within 48 hours.
