What to do in case of an accident
If you have an accident or are injured while at work, please call Campus Security at 541-962-3911 as soon as possible. A safety team, made up of members of the EOU safety committee, will be notified and will meet with you to discuss the accident/injury. It is important to note that all accidents or injuries must be reported, regardless of the severity or whether or not medical treatment is sought, within 48 hours.
Near-miss accidents also need to be reported. The National Safety Council has defined a near-miss as an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage – but had the potential to do so. It is important that everyone at EOU report these too. Call Campus Security at 541-962-3911.
We believe that everyone has a role in keeping all of us safe. Help us out by reporting any accident/injury/near-miss within 48 hours.
