Hazard/Incident Reporting and Follow-Up

  • Report a workplace hazard or incident

    Employees are to promptly report hazards and incidents without fear of reprisal (see Stanford's anti-reprisal policy).

    • For serious injury/illness or fatality, report by phone to the EH&S 24-Hour Emergency Hotline within 8 hours at (650) 725-9999
    • Cal/OSHA defines an injury or illness as "serious" if it:
      • Requires inpatient hospitalization for a period in excess of 24 hours for other than medical observation; or
      • An employee suffers a loss of any member of the body; or
      • An employee suffers any serious degree of permanent disfigurement.
    • For reporting and investigating all incidents (injuries, illnesses, or exposures), employees and their supervisors are to jointly complete the SU-17 Incident Investigation Report within 24 hours and fax to Risk Management (723-9456). Use the Incident Investigation Tips for additional guidance.
    • If necessary, anonymous or confidential reporting of safety concerns can also be made directly to EH&S
  • Get medical treatment for workplace injuries
  • Hazard/incident follow-up
    • For imminent hazards which cannot be immediately abated without endangering people and/or property:
      1. restrict all affected people from the hazard area, or
      2. remove the equipment from service. Personnel assigned to correct the hazardous condition shall be provided with necessary safeguards.
    • Follow-up efforts for workplace incidents must be documented in Part 5 of the SU17 Incident Investigation Report. Use the Incident Investigation Tips for additional guidance.
    • To further evaluate task-based safety concerns, use the Task Safety Analysis Form to systematically assess process hazards and identify appropriate safety measures.
