Campus Injury Illness Dashboard

Campus injury rates remained constant when compared to past years, but due to increased efforts, the types of injuries have changed.

While efforts to prevent certain injuries were successful, other categories continue to be difficult to reduce. Strains and sprains have ranked in the top two for the past several years, and currently those injuries ranked number one in total number of incidents.  This is aligned with national injury/illness data with sprain/strain being number one and slip, trip, and fall being number two.

Our sprain/strain injuries related to repetitive motion, lifting, reaching, pulling and pushing activates. EHS has ergonomic training and an ergonomist who performs evaluation to assist in the reduction of these injuries.
