How to Report a Workplace Fatality or Accident

All employers must report to ADOSH all workplace accidents as follows:

  • All work-related fatalities within 8 hours following the incident.
  • All work-related inpatient hospitalizations, all amputations, and all losses of an eye within 24 hours.

Note: Only fatalities occurring within 30 days of the work-related incident must be reported to ADOSH. Further, for an in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye, these incidents must be reported to ADOSH only if they occur within 24 hours of the work-related incident.

You can report to ADOSH by:

  • Calling ADOSH's free and confidential number at (602) 542-5795 or toll-free at (855) 268-5251.
  • Calling the ADOSH Phoenix Office at (602) 542-5795 or Tucson Office at (520) 628-5478 during normal business hours 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Filling out the form provided here, saving it onto your own computer, and then either faxing it to (602) 542-1614 OR attaching it to an email that you can create here.

If you call outside of regular business hours, please leave a message and someone will return your call as soon as possible.

How to Handle Situations Involving Imminent Danger

If you are an employee or employee representative and believe you or another employee are/is exposed to a condition that is immediately dangerous to life or health, you should first attempt to resolve the matter with the employer. If that is not possible, contact ADOSH at (602) 542-5795 or toll-free at (855) 268-5251 for guidance. After hours, please leave a message and someone will return your call as soon as possible.
