To report a work-related injury or illness, use the online Employer’s First Report (EFR) system.

EFR is an online incident management system that allows UC supervisors, administrators, and department representatives to submit, monitor, and resolve initial causes and verify that corrective actions have been taken to reduce the likelihood of recurrence.

For step-by-step instructions on how to use the EFR system, please see the guides listed in the Resources section.

Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) must be notified immediately in case of fatality or serious injury (inpatient hospitalization, loss of any member of the body, or permanent disfigurement) by calling (510) 643-3073. If the serious injury occurs after hours, EH&S should be notified via the UC Police Department.
