Accident/Incident Reporting

All incidents and accidents must be reported to a supervisor and on-line through the UBC Central Accident Incident Reporting System (CAIRS) as soon as possible following the incident/accident. Reporting serves as documented evidence in the event that the incident evolves into a claim and the individual involved (provided that they covered by WorkSafeBC) needs workers compensation. In addition, reporting is an important piece in maintaining a safe work environment for everyone.
