The following guidance is offered as a supplement to existing incident response protocols for colleges and units sponsoring youth activities. The information provided below is not intended to replace or supersede existing policies and procedures, nor is it inclusive of all types of incidents or emergencies. For guidance related to emergency planning and crisis response, see EM3: Emergency Operations Plan.
In general, incidents can be categorized as 'low risk' or 'high risk.'
A Low Risk Incident is one where the impact to an individual or group is both minor and temporary. Low risk incidents are not caused by a hazard or unsafe condition in the environment.
A High Risk Incident originates from a hazard or unsafe condition in the program or the environment. The incident poses a serious risk to an individual or group. This may also include a “near miss,” (i.e., a hazard that if not addressed could cause harm in the future).
* Refer to EM2: Incident Reporting and Escalation for standard protocol for reporting High Risk Incidents.
