Reporting work injuries and other incidents goes online Jan. 1
Starting Jan. 1, the City will switch to an online form to report work-related injuries. The new online form will also create a process to report near misses, internal air quality issues and ergonomics issues.
Moving the form online will:
- Make it easier for you to report injuries, incidents, or unsafe equipment or practices.
- Minimize communication gaps and mail delays that occur with paper forms.
- Speed up reporting by letting employees and supervisors file reports 24 hours a day from any Internet-connected device.
- Notify supervisors and safety liaisons immediately of injuries or incidents.
The online form will be available outside the City’s firewall at a public link, so you will not need remote access software to submit it. You’ll also be able to find the link on CityTalk under work tools, forms and the Risk and Claims Management page.
Supervisor and manager training
Supervisors and any other employees who help file these reports can sign up for training to learn about the online tool. View the dates available for training.
