LBNL employees must report all work-related injuries or illnesses to their supervisor and Health Services. A work-related injury (or illness) means that the injury occurred either at an LBNL facility, or while conducting LBNL- related activities elsewhere. LBNL reviews all work-related injuries or illnesses.
LBNL expectations for reporting and reviewing work-related injuries and illnesses are based on the need to ensure that:
- Appropriate health care is provided in response to an injury (or illness)
- Cause of injury is determined
- Measures are implemented that will prevent or reduce the likelihood of recurrence
