Who can have access?

UBC CAIRS is an online system to report Incidents and Accidents. You do not need special access to report an incident or accident.

If you are a safety administrator in an area or a Local Health and Safety Committee Co-chair it is ideal to have access to the system. If you do not fall into one of these two categories, you may still obtain access on a need know basis.

What does access grant me?

With access to UBC CAIRS, you will be able to view the incidents that are occurring in your area or the buildings and departments you have requested and the corrective actions that have been recommended. You can use this information to carry out a follow up to the incident and ensure that corrective actions have been completed and effective. You may also be involved with assisting in the accident investigation.

In addition, you will be able to use the statistical features of the Database to generate charts and graphs to identify incident trends in your area for discussion at the Local Health and Safety Committee.

You will not be able to access any personal information about personnel involved in the incident.
