Online Accident/Incident eForm for Students, Contractors and Visitors

Updated: November 30, 2022

Getting Started

This form should be completed and submitted within 24 hours of the incident by a University of Toronto employee in the event of an incident or injury involving students, contractors, or visitors (including visiting students conducting research). This form may also be used to report incidents like near misses, where there was no injury, but the potential for injury existed.

For injuries or incidents involving employees, complete the eForm for Employees.

Students who are injured on UofT property and/or in the course of a UofT sanctioned activities (e.g., research, academic or other UofT programning, such as fitness classes, student clubs, etc.) should immediately report the incident to their UofT contact (e.g., academic contact or athletic front desk staff).  The UofT contact then submits the Non-Employee Online Accident/Incident eForm (blue button below).

Students who are injured while employed by UofT (e.g., TA for class) should immediately report their incident to their workplace supervisor who will then submit the eForm for Employees. If the student is unsure of their employment status at the time of their injury, they should contact their divisional HR office.

Students who are injured while they are on a placement should immediately report the incident to their placement employer/supervisor and to the UofT Placement Coordinator (placements@utoronto.ca) and complete the Student on Unpaid Placements Accidental Report.

If you require medical care, please go to a health care provider. Occupational Health and Safety does not provide primary care, but only occupation-related consulting services.
