    • If you work for an agency that reports an injury, illness or near miss using the Workday system, logon to Workday. Select Report a Safety Incident within the Workday Safety application. 

    • If your agency has not established an injury, illness or near miss reporting process or you are unaware of the process, please click on this hyperlink.
