Electronic incident reporting replaces paper accident report form

Submitted by Human Capital Services

Human Capital Services, in partnership with several offices around campus, has designed a new electronic incident reporting process for accidents and incidents related to the working environment at K-State.

Effective Nov. 19, 2018, all incidents, accidents or injuries should be reported through the Electronic Incident Report. The report can also be found at k-state.edu/hcs/incident. This electronic report replaces the former Accident Report Form. The new process will provide a better user experience for the employee, department and administration. It also will ensure work-related incidents are reported in a timely manner to the State Self Insurance Fund for assessment. Information gathered in the incident reporting process also will be used by the K-State Department of Environmental Health and Safety to support uninterrupted research and learning within a safe and healthy environment at K-State.

A few reminders for work-related incidents:

  • If an emergency, seek medical treatment at the nearest emergency facility.
  • Non-emergency treatment must be pre-authorized by the State Self Insurance Fund. Supervisors or Human Capital Services Liaisons can call the State Self Insurance Fund at 785-296-2364 to request authorization.
  • Supervisors will review and confirm incidents that are reported by employees.
