Incident Prevention, Reporting & Investigation

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) ensures the University of North Carolina - Asheville is informed about employee near-misses, first-aids, injuries, and illnesses for the purposes of incident investigation and prevention and to establish a mechanism for compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations for reporting work-related injuries and illnesses. 

Safe work practices are part of an employee's duties in performing their daily tasks. Reporting unsafe conditions and at-risk behaviors are key to prevention. A proactive response to workplace hazards is important to protecting employees and others as well as University property.
