In Case of Accident or “near miss”

  1. Notify your PI and the lab manager as soon as possible of your accident, incident, or near miss. Then proceed to Step 2.
  2. Fill out the online accident report (OARS) form and submit it within 24 hours.  The supervisor, lab manager, or person who had the accident can fill out the form.
  3. For any serious accidents and each time a visit to the hospital is needed, call EH&S at 543-7262 within 4 hours (during regular business hours). After regular business hours, call UW Police at 206-685-UWPD (8973) and they will notify EH&S. Do not clean up or move any equipment involved in a serious accident until EH&S has received clearance from State investigators.

NOTE: FOR ANY LIFE THREATENING INCIDENT, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY
