Reporting Fatalities and Casualties
This is to alert Emergency Responders and Public Sector Managers in the state to make note of a change to the 24 hour Fatality and Casualty Reporting Line in relation to accidents involving public sector employees i.e.: State Agencies, Police, Fire, or Municipal employees. The new numbers, (860) 263-6946 (local) and 1-866-241-4060 (statewide/tollfree) are direct phone lines dedicated to this purpose at the Connecticut Department of Laborís Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA).
As mandated by law per the Connecticut General Statutes, Title 31 Sec. 31-374 CONN-OSHA must be notified of an accident resulting in a fatality or catastrophic event (an accident involving hospitalization of three or more employees) within 8 hours of the occurrence. The new telephone numbers are only for fatality/catastrophe reporting. ALL OTHER BUSINESS should be conducted during normal business hours, Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. by calling (860) 263-6900. Calls other than fatality/catastrophe reporting on this line will not be processed.
Fatalities and catastrophic events in the Private Sector should continue to be reported to Federal OSHA at 1-800-321-OSHA (6742).
