Student Injury Reporting (Non - Employee)

The OSU College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences provides the following Student Injury Report Form and Guidelines to document and track the occurrence of student injuries. Complete the form when an injury leads to any of the following:

  1. Care needed is greater than general first aid.
  2. The student seeks medical attention (OSU Student Health Services, health care provider office, urgent care center, or emergency department).
  3. EMS 9-1-1 is called.

All student injuries should be reported to the instructor immediately!

The CFAES Student Injury Report Form  should be completed for every incident/injury of a non-employee (volunteer, visitor, participant, etc.), preferably within 24 hours of the incident/injury. Copies of the form should be sent to the Department Chair and the contacts at the bottom of the “Student Injury Report”.

Also, submit a copy of the completed forms to The Department of Risk Management and Insurance:
