VI. UNIVERSITY HEALTH SAFETY AND SECURITY
WORK RELATED INJURIES and ILLNESSES
Non-Emergency Medical Treatment
If you are injured or become ill as a result of your work, you must immediately inform your manager. As
needed, a medical appointment will be scheduled at the University's designated medical clinic. A copy of
your job description should be taken to the clinic to assist in determining any work restrictions. If the
treating physician releases you to return-to-work, every effort will be made to accommodate any restriction.
After a work-related accident occurs, your manager will meet with you to complete an on-line accident
report. All work-related accidents must be reported, including accidents that occur during weekends,
holidays and non-business hours.
The on-line accident report can be found at:

Emergency Medical Treatment
For emergency medical response, dial 911 and then call Security at 811 to report an emergency,
work-related injury or illness.
Workers’ Compensation Insurance
Drake provides workers' compensation insurance to all eligible employees. This insurance provides
medical, surgical and hospital treatment along with payment for lost wages resulting from work-related
injuries and illnesses.
CAMPUS SECURITY
Drake employs campus security officers who patrol the campus on foot and in vehicles around the clock.
Security phones and/or call boxes with direct lines to Campus Security are located inside major buildings
and in various outside locations across campus. Call Drake Security at 811 in an emergency situation or
2222 in a non-emergency situation.
EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
To be prepared in the event of an emergency, the Drake Emergency Reference Guide is posted in major
campus buildings. The guide is designed as a reference to help you respond immediately and effectively to
a wide range of emergency situations. You are encouraged to read the reference guide in your location.
Contact your dean or manager about specific emergency evacuation procedures for your college or
department.
Drake has a contingency plan that will be activated in situations affecting the University community which
is available at

SMOKE-FREE CAMPUS ENVIRONMENT
Effective July 1, 2008 Iowa Law prohibits smoking anywhere on the Drake University Campus, including in
University owned or leased vehicles and any vehicles parked in University parking lots. Employees who
leave campus to smoke must have manager approval to do so. Time used for smoking during the regular
workday is unpaid, but may be made up by taking a shorter lunch or extending the workday, with manager
approval.
