Accident Injury Incident Reporting and Process

Accident Injury Incident Reporting Process

Call Public Safety at 515-271-2222, when there is a fall, injury, or some type of accident or incident on campus. Public Safety has training to assess the situation and secure help if injured requests help. Public Safety also completes and forwards an accident/incident report to the Insurance Office or Human Resources for insurance purposes.

If Public Safety is not called at the time of the incident, and an incident occurs in a class or meeting, it is the faculty member's or the director’s responsibility to fill out an Incident Report online within 48 hours. The online form automatically goes to Risk and Insurance

If you know of an incident that an Official Drake Public Safety Report has not been filed, then you will need to fill out an online incident report.
