New platform for K-State incident reporting

Submitted by Jason Talbert

Effective Monday, June 6, incident reporting will now be reported through software used by K-State Environmental Health and Safety instead of ServiceNow.

The updated system has been designed to capture the same information as ServiceNow, and there are no changes to any other facets of the incident reporting and workers' compensation programs. Work-related accidents, incidents, injuries or occupational diseases remain required to be reported within three business days. Supervisors who are aware of any reportable incidents should work with the employee directly and, if needed, initiate the report on their behalf.

The Human Capital Services benefits unit will continue to receive notifications through the incident reporting system and relay pertinent details to the State Self Insurance Fund. The fund will then determine if the incident is compensable under workers' compensation. Employees should never be discouraged from seeking medical treatment should they feel it necessary. They are encouraged, however, to obtain prior approval for treatment from the State Self Insurance Fund whenever possible. The Nurse Triage Line is available at 833-756-2007 to help manage this process. Due to strict processing deadlines, failure to submit the report timely could result in the denial of claims and/or benefits by the State Self Insurance Fund.

Additional information regarding workers' compensation and incident reporting is available on the Human Capital Services' benefits website. Please reach out to benefits@k-state.edu for questions regarding reporting requirements and the workers' compensation process.
