- Employees will immediately notify their supervisor when occupationally-related injuries and illnesses occur, or when employees first become aware of such problems.
- Supervisors will investigate all accidents, injuries, occupational illnesses, and near-miss incidents to identify the causal factors or attendant hazards. Appropriate repairs or procedural changes will be implemented promptly to mitigate the hazards implicated in these events.

Biohazard Incident Report
In the event of :
Any spill of recombinant DNA or infectious agents
Injuries and accidental autoinoculation, ingestion, or inhalation of infectious agents
Any accidental release of recombinant plants or plant pathogens to the environment
Notify your immediate supervisor and EH&S. A Biohazard Incident Report should be completed - in most cases when an EFR is submitted, a biohazard exposure report will be triggered by the EFR - if it is in an environmental release of plant related material (not harmful to people) complete the Biohazard Incident Report.
