» Accident & Incident Reporting

Individuals who experience injury or illness and require emergency medical care should call 911 for the proper level of medical support. Other individuals who require medical care should seek the services of their preferred provider.  For urgent, but non-emergency care, US Healthworks has a number of clinics near our campus locations:

  • Rinker Campus:  15751 Rockfield Blvd., Irvine, CA  92618, Phone: (949) 206-9100 and 22741 Lambert St., Suite 1608, Lake Forest, CA  92630, Phone: (949) 581-3011
  • Orange Campus: 800 N Tustin Ave. Suite A, Santa Ana, CA  92705, Phone: (714) 245-0800


Accident/incident investigations are necessary to identify causation and to help identify deficiencies in the environment and implement corrective actions that might be indicated. 

Staff, faculty and students who are assigned responsibility for an activity shall immediately investigate and report all occurrences (incidents, near miss, accidents, and illnesses).

To facilitate this process, Chapman University uses and electronic reporting format that can be accessed by all members of the university community. This way your report will be properly filed with Risk Management, and someone will be back in contact with you for further information if necessary.

Actions Required

  1. In the event of an accident on campus that involves personal injury, IMMEDIATELY report the incident to Chapman University Public Safety by calling 911 from any campus phone, or if using any other phone by dialing the dispatch desk at (714) 997-6763.  Public Safety is open 24 hours a day, year- round. Public Safety will provide a prompt response, and will notify the Orange Fire and/or Police Department as indicated. Public Safety officers are experienced in proper technique for investigation and can assist and/or provide further direction with regard to your investigation.  
  2. Complete the online Incident/Accident Investigation Report. This form should be used to report an incident and document the findings of your preliminary investigation. An incident is defined to include any event that results in injury to a person or damage to property. Complete this electronic form as soon as possible but within 24 hours of the event. Your online report will be filed with the Chapman University Risk Manager.

+ - Risky Business Week

Risky Business: A Week Focusing on Risk Management's Contributions to Higher Education is November 5-9, 2012. Risky Business week is a new campaign of the University Risk Management and Insurance Association (URMIA) to raise awareness of the institutional value of today's higher education risk managers, enabling our institution to meet its mission today and well into the future.
Today's higher education risk managers operate on campus in a wide variety of capacities:

  • Risk managers provide support and consultation to staff and faculty on a wide range of matters that impact the financial health and well-being of the university community.
  • We bring risk management expertise to students, faculty, and staff as they plan campus activities and events.
  • We view risk holistically, proactively, and responsively when seeking ways to protect our students, guests, and employees; our institution’s reputation; and our financial resources.
  • We are committed to campus safety.
  • We are strategic and practical, and we like to look at the “big picture.”

At Chapman University the Risk Management Office works to identify and prevent risks, including a wide array of issues ranging from Student Life to Faculty Field Trips to Foreign Travel to the purchase of insurance to limit the financial liabilities of the University.
