Reporting an Injury or Illness

All university employees are responsible for making a report of accidental injury they become aware of or witness. 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.

On the Job

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).

Students or Members of the Public

Reports of injury, illness or damages involving a student or member of the public are NOT processed through the Online Accident Reporting System. Use the STUDENT OR PUBLIC INCIDENT ALERT FORM (PDF) in such cases and email to ALERTRISK@finance.rutgers.edu.
