Incident and Injury Reporting
Reporting Accidents, Injuries, Incidents, and Safety Concerns
Grand Valley State University strives to maintain a safe and healthy environment by correcting situations that caused or could likely cause injury. All incidents should be reported in a timely manner (24 hours).
The following should be reported:
- Near misses/dangerous conditions
- Hazardous or biohazardous material exposures
- Hazardous material spills or environmental releases
- Fire or property damage from an incident
Faculty, Staff and Students should report any of the above incidents using GVSU's electronic reporting form. The form is only accessible on the GVSU network. Employees should also report serious work-related injuries and illnesses to Human Resources.
In emergencies please contact GVSU Public Safety at 616-331-3255 or dial 9-1-1.
Why Is Reporting Necessary?
The information provided on these forms helps to build a safer community at GVSU. Some things to consider:
- These reports help us to identify hazardous situations and adjust work practices, policies or training accordingly.
- Every report is important. Reports for minor incidents or near misses could help us to identify trends or lapses in our procedures.
- There are no penalties or job discrimination for expressing any concern about a safety related matter. Anonymous reporting is also available.
