Incident Management

Incident Reporting

At the University of Alberta, incident reporting irrespective of severity allows us to observe trends and find opportunities to implement safe work practices. Lessons learned from incidents is a proactive approach to minimizing recurrence. 

For serious incidents

The Government of Alberta requires that all serious incidents be reported immediately to Alberta Labour. Serious incidents include the following:

  • Injury or incident that results in the death of a worker
  • Injury or incident that results in worker admitted to hospital (as an inpatient)
  • Unplanned or uncontrolled explosion, fire, or flood that causes (or had the potential to cause) a serious injury
  • Collapse or failure of any part of a building or structure that is necessary for its structural integrity
  • Collapse of a hoist, crane, or derrick

To report a serious incident:

  1. Call the Control Centre: 780-492-5555.
  2. Report your incident, provide your phone number, and request a call back from the EHS on-call person.
  3. Complete and submit an incident report.

For all other incidents

  1. Complete and submit an incident report.
  2. Your supervisor will then be notified to complete the second part of the form.
  3. Injured and required professional medical attention?
  4. Follow up with your supervisor to make sure all reporting is complete.
