*Important Information Regarding Workplace Injuries and Illnesses*


     In compliance with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration (OSHA), the UVM Department of Risk Management & Safety 
maintains records of all injuries and illnesses that are reported as 
related to work.  The University is required to summarize the total 
numbers of reportable incidents and the number of lost work days and 
restricted work days.  These incidents are categorized as injuries 
(those resulting from a specific incident) and other illnesses (such as 
those resulting from hazardous exposures).  Injuries and illness are 
recorded as cases involving fatalities, lost work days, or restricted 
work days.  The attached summary totals reflect those incidents reported 
throughout the calendar year 2013.
