Program Participant / Volunteer Injury Reporting (Non-Employee)

This information is related to incident/injury reporting for non-employees (e.g. volunteers, visitors, participants, etc.)
IMPORTANT:  In the event of an injury, the injured individual should obtain first aid as needed and notify the immediate supervisor of the incident as soon as practicable.
The “Program Participant Incident/Injury Report” should be completed for every incident/injury of a non-employee (volunteer, visitor, participant, etc.), preferably within 24 hours of the incident/injury. In addition, please complete Section 3: Contributing Factors or Conditions on the “Employee Accident Form.” Even though the individual is not an employee, the information in Section 3 is important for the risk management department to conduct a root cause analysis.
Submit a copy of the completed forms to The Department of Risk Management and Insurance: and your CFAES safety contact. (listed below)
