Accidents and Other Emergencies
The following procedures are simplified. Use common sense in all activities and responses.
The College encourages employees to exercise safe working practices in the work place. Should an accident occur, the following procedures must be followed:
A. Personal Injury:
- If the injury is serious requiring immediate treatment, call 911 for emergency assistance.
- Notify the Executive Dean, Campus Supervisor or other administrator of the accident as soon as possible.
- Submit an accident report, no matter how slight the injury appears (forms available in business office), detailing circumstances of the accident to the Business Office, 712-362-0424, no later than 48 hours after the accident.
B. Property Damage:
- Any damaged College property needs to be reported. The Facilities Management and/or the Chief Financial Officer should be contacted for assistance in reporting and repairing.
Effectively preventing future accidents requires that we fully understand the causes involved. Please be as detailed as possible when documenting an accident.
