Workplace and community safety

Workplace safety is coordinated by EHS Occupational health and safety, which provides compliance guidance, training and technical support to the ASU community necessary to address safety and health, regulatory compliance and related risks. EHS trainers are part of this organization and coordinate all EHS provided training and manage associated records.

OHS conducts inspections of laboratories, shops, maintenance and service facilities for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and related regulatory compliance and ensures corrective action is implemented to address findings. OHS also addresses worker safety and health complaints including concerns related to indoor air quality and workstation set up.

Accident/incident reporting

Accident and incident reporting and investigation

At ASU, our approach is to take every reasonable precaution to prevent work-related injuries and illnesses. Unfortunately, injuries and illnesses still occur and when they do, ASU wants to learn from these incidents and put measures in place to prevent future occurrences.

All employees must immediately report any injury or illness associated with an incident at work to their supervisor. This initiates a process to investigate the incident and put corrective action in place to prevent similar events from occurring in the future. All incidents resulting in an injury to an employee, student, visitor, or damage to ASU property in excess of $500 must be reported to EHS. Incidents may be reported online or you may report the incident by calling at 480-965-1823 or 480-727-9669.

Accident and incident reporting for supervisors

If an ASU employee is injured or becomes ill from a work-related incident supervisors are responsible for completing and submitting documentation. If an accident or incident involves injuries that require medical attention, supervisors must complete and submit the workers compensation forms packet. If an accident or incident involves injuries that do not require medical attention, supervisors must complete and submit the supervisor's incident investigation report.  

If an ASU employee is injured or becomes ill from a work-related incident, the Arizona Department of Administration requires reporting and additional forms to be completed in order to process Workers' Compensation claims.

Please be aware that the Arizona Department of Administration is adding an additional service to its workers' compensation management system. A Nurse Triage Service is available to any employee who is unfortunate enough to be injured while on the job. If you experience a potential work place injury or illness, and have not already received medical treatment, please contact at 1-800-685-2877.

ASU vehicle accidents have the additional requirement for a written report despite the amount of damage, within 24 hours of the time of the accident. Use the forms supplied by the investigating officer at the scene of the accident or those provided by Insurance Services日本一本道a不卡免费. Employees driving a state vehicle that are involved in a collision with another vehicle will exchange driver and insurance information to include:

  1. Name of driver and occupants.
  2. Telephone number of the drivers.
  3. Insurance provider information to include the policy number and expiration date.
  4. All name and contact information for any witnesses.

Photographs of the scene and vehicle damage are recommended and should be submitted with the incident report to Insurance Services. A driver involved in a traffic accident on university property must report the traffic accident to the ASU Police Department as soon as possible, but no later than 24 hours after the accident.

Facilities maintenance programs

There are a significant number of Occupational Safety and Health Agency, or OSHA, regulations that apply to facilities maintenance operations, and any construction or remodeling activities. To assist ASU Facilities Development and Management staff with compliance with these regulations, and to ensure that best practices are followed, EHS has developed several general safety program guidance documents for use by ASU employees who work in facilities maintenance operations and similar positions.  Examples are below and include a brief description and a link to the document. Employees working in laboratories or offices should review guidance available on those websites.
