Illness or Accident Incidents Policy

An incident report form will be adopted (see Appendix B) and used by staff to document injury or illness sustained by any individual while on Library property.  In the absence of the Library Manager, the person in charge at the time of the incident will complete the form and take appropriate action (ie.- call for medical assistance if needed), and inform the Library Manager and Board President as soon as possible.
The person suffering injury or illness, any witnesses to the incident and the staff member in charge should provide a written description at the time.  All statements will be signed and dated.
The same form will be used for staff, volunteers, patrons and others (delivery people, community service workers, etc.)

Failure to follow and abide by this policy may result in poor evaluations by the Library Manager or further disciplinary action as stated in Section (I) of the Library Personal Policy.
