  • Contact the Health and Safety team, your supervisor or manager.
  • Fill out a Hazard Notification Form and give this to your DHSO/Supervisor/Manager.
  • Report a hazard on Vault the University's online health and safety management system.
  • Ask your DHSO or the Health and Safety team to investigate an accident or near miss.
  • Report risks or hazards at employer/employee meetings, departmental meetings, or staff meetings.
