Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City

Emergency Preparedness Plan for Injury to Students/Guests on Campus

All injuries occurring on campus need to be reported to the Office of Safety and Security immediately regardless of the severity at (405) 945-9111. Please fill out the Accident/Injury form in its entirety and return to Security without delay.

 

If a student or guest is injured on campus, it is up to the faculty or staff person supervising the class or event to contact the Office of Safety and Security so that Security may complete an "Incident Report" which details the injury. (In the event that the faculty or staff person cannot be located, it will be necessary for the student or guest to contact Security directly.)

 

If the injured person feels that the injury or property damage was caused by negligence on the part of OSU-Oklahoma City and wishes to file a claim for medical costs or property damage, they should contact either the vice president for Finance and Operations for OSU-Oklahoma City or they may contact the State Risk Management Office at (405) 521-4999. OSU-Oklahoma City will not make any reimbursements for personal injury or physical damage. Determination of negligence and amounts of monetary liability are the exclusive responsibility of the State Risk Management Office. Employees of OSU-Oklahoma City may NOT obligate any institutional funds for payment of injuries or property damage.

 

If after an investigation, it has been determined that the injury or property damage was caused by negligence on the part of OSU-Oklahoma City, the injured person may file a claim for medical costs and/or property damage by contacting the vice president of Finance and Operations for OSU-Oklahoma City.

 

If there are any questions in regard to this policy, please contact the vice president of Finance and Operations.
