Important Information Regarding

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

and other illnesses (such as those resulting from hazardous
exposures). Injuries and illness are recorded as cases involving

summary totals reflect those incidents reported throughout the
