Risk Management - Injury & Incident Reporting - Report an Automobile Accident

Extension employees should submit all automobile accident (state-owned vehicles) reports to Risk Management using an Extension-specific SharePoint workflow within 24 hours of the incident. There is additional reporting involved in automobile accidents that will need to be completed outside of this workflow.


  • UW-Madison Risk Management requires that all UW-Madison related automobile accidents with state-owned vehicles be reported.
  • The report must be filed within 24 hours of the incident.
  • Extension has its own workflow on SharePoint for submitting these reports directly to Risk Management.
  • All state owned automobile accidents should be treated as high-risk injuries/incidents and should be reported immediately.

Instructions to Report an Automobile Accident

1) Follow All Instructions on the Risk Management Website

Risk Management Instructions for Reporting an Automobile Accident
