Whenever there is a laboratory accident, however minor, it should be reported to both the Biosafety Officer and the professor whose lab the accident occurred in. This information may be used to  modify lab protocols so that “near miss” incidents and accidents are prevented. 


Incident and Accident Report

This form should be completed whenever there is an accident or exposure incident in either a BSL1 or a BSL2 lab. The form may also be used to report a “near miss” incident.

This form must be completed whether or not a medical evaluation is received.

Blood and Body Fluid Exposure

This form should be completed whenever there is an accident that results in a possible exposure to a potentially biohazardous agent. Take a copy of this form to your medical evaluation. 

This form is identical to the EHS form "B-2 ECP 01.1.v5" that is found in Appendix C of the Exposure Control Plan.

Occupational Injury

It is only necessary to complete the Occupational Injury Report form if the injured individual is a compensated employee. This form should be taken to the medical evaluation and must be filed with Human Resources within 24 hours of the injury.
