Effective February 29, 2016 the University of Arizona has implemented a new system for online reporting of workplace safety incidents, injuries, and occupational illness. The new system uses a Health and Safety Module in the UAccess Manager Self Service with NetID login, and replaces the WebConnect system that has been in place for the past several years.
A Quick Reference Guide for the new system has been developed by UITS and is available here: Quick Reference Guide
I CANNOT LOG IN UAccess Health and Safety Module. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
- First, you need UA NetID. If you have NetID but have questions about how to log in UAccess, please contact 24/7 support at (520) 626-TECH (8324) or (877) 522-7929.
WHAT HAS CHANGED?
- The link for reporting injuries and incidents is now in UAccess Employee as part of Manager’s Self Service. Supervisors and others that are already authorized to approve timesheets in UAccess are also now authorized to submit online injury reports at the same location. Click here for a guide to using the new system.
- Individuals who wish to report injuries that are not also time approvers will need to request access to the Health and Safety module through the Access Provisioning System. Contact RMS for assistance.
- The new system uses your UA Net ID for access. There is no longer a requirement to obtain a separate password from RMS.
- There is also now 24/7 access to an occupational health nurse who can triage an injury over the phone, and refer and authorize immediate medical care. Employees may call (800) 685-2877 to use this service for routine injuries.
WHAT HAS NOT CHANGED?
- Supervisors are still required to file an online injury report on behalf of their employees, and work with adjusters and others to investigate and evaluate the incident or injury.
- 9-1-1 is still the call to make for injuries requiring emergency medical treatment or transportation.
- Worker’s Compensation benefits for UA employees continue to be provided and managed by the State Risk Management Division. UA-RMS is the liaison to this agency, and can assist employees with contacts and claim coordination.
- RMS will continue to maintain the required OSHA 300 Injury Log and Summary for all UA employees at all locations statewide.
WHAT ABOUT TRAINING ON THE NEW SYSTEM?
- RMS and UITS will be conducting several demonstration sessions to introduce the new online reporting tool and walk supervisors and admins through the process.
- For additional assistance, contact the Worker’s Compensation Coordinator at (520) 621-3626 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
