Hazard Reporting

It is often possible to personally correct a hazardous condition (e.g. wiping up a spilled drink from the floor, straightening a floor mat by a door.) On other occasions, others must be involved to eliminate a hazard. Corrections often only take place if the hazard has been identified and those empowered to reduce the risk are made aware of the hazard. If you cannot personally eliminate or guard against the hazard then report it to the supervisor of an area (e.g. shop, lab, office, etc.), to a maintenance or administrative group, or to RMSI. Below is a set of specific areas to call with potential hazards identified at the university.
