Use of Google Chrome Required

NOTE: Google Chrome must be used to access the GURU website and for completing and/or downloading fill-and-print forms. Firefox, Internet Explorer, and/or Microsoft Edge browsers do not support all features required for PDF fill-and-print form functionality. Substitutes for an approved University official form (created using a different browser or scanned copies) will be returned along with the request to use the Chrome version of the form.


The Incident Form provides a means for the Claims Manager within the Office of Risk Management to obtain factual information to evaluate claims for property damage or bodily injury accidents or incidents.

General Information:

DO NOT use this form for worker's compensation claims (see Human Resources Workers' Compensation website) or for automobile accident/injuries claims (see Vehicle Accident Report). Each of those websites contain documentation related to those types of events.

Complete the form, in its entirety, and describe the incident in detail. The individual intending to file the incident form must sign and date the completed form. If the individual is unable to complete the form, a University representative may assist with completion of the form, but the form must be signed by the individual.

The completed and signed form is to be turned into the College/Departmental Safety Officer or Commonwealth Campus Director of Finance & Business, who will file the report with the University's Office of Risk Management.
