Reporting an Injury or Illness

All university employees are responsible for making a report of accidental injury they witness or of which they are made aware. The head of each department is responsible for transmitting any report they receive to the Department of Risk Management & Insurance.

The appropriate reporting process will depend on whether the injury or illness is to a university employee, or to a student or member of the general public.

Any report of an injury or illness involving an employee must be processed through the Online Accident Reporting System, hosted by Rutgers Environmental Health & Safety (REHS).

Reports of injury or illness involving a student or member of the public are NOT processed through the Online Accident Reporting System. Use the Injury Report Form for Students or Public (PDF) in such cases.
