ELM Revision: Update to Accident Reporting

Effective October 12, 2017, the Postal Service is revising the Employee and Labor Relations Manual (ELM), section 821.123, to remove the damage amounts to ensure all accidents are reported correctly in the Employee Health and Safety (EHS) system.

Employee and Labor Relations Manual (ELM)

8 Safety, Health, and Environment
821 Actions in the Event of Accident, Injury, or Illness
821.123 Postal System for Accident Reporting

[Revise the text of items e. and f. to read as follows:]

e. Damage to Postal Service property or to property of customers or the general public, regardless of whether an injury was involved.

f. Fire damage to Postal Service property.

We will incorporate this revision into the next online update of the ELM.
