Injury and illness are the most common campus related emergencies. The University maintains a Health Center for students and access to a nearby Workman’s Compensation Clinic for staff and faculty. Visitors to the University as well as any seriously injured student, staff, or faculty member may receive emergency treatment at any one of several local hospitals.
In accordance with Workman’s Compensation laws an employee or campus volunteer’s supervisor must provide injured employee’s with an EMPLOYEE’S CLAIM FOR WORKER’S COMPENSATION BENEFITS within 24 hours of the accident.
All on campus automobile accidents resulting in injury must be reported to the University Police.
All off campus automobile accidents involving University vehicles OR private vehicles driven by University personnel while on University business are subject to local law enforcement rules and should be reported to the jurisdiction where the accident occurred.
The driver of a University OR State Owned vehicle which is involved in an accident must record all pertinent information on the Accident Identification Card, Std Form 269, before leaving the scene of the accident. If another vehicle is involved the driver of that vehicle will be given the appropriate portion of Std Form 269.
All accidents involving University vehicles OR private vehicles driven by University personnel which result in injury to any person or which involve serious damage to private property must be reported immediately to the State Office of Insurance and Risk Management at (916) 445-2184. The driver of the State Owned vehicle must complete and submit the Report of Vehicle Accident Form, Std Form 270 within 48 hours of the accident. If that person is unable to complete the form then the immediate supervisor or person who authorized the employee to use the vehicle will ensure that the form is completed and inform the Auto Liability Self Insurance Unit of the Office of Insurance Risk Management at (916) 445-2184.
