Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) reports workplace injuries and occupational disease cases to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as numbers of incidents out of total employees (who worked for the University for any length of time, and for any number of hours per week, full or part-time, including student workers). Therefore, the number of "employees" of IU Bloomington, for consistency with EHS and OSHA is 27,521 in the performance year, and 16,697 in the baseline year. However, as STARS asks for full-time equivalent employees in each year, that is what is reported in the reporting fields.

*Data provided is from 2015, while full-time equivalent data in IC-3 is from 2016-2017, hence small discrepancy. However, data from January-December 2015 is the most recent information we have.

The information presented here is self-reported. While AASHE staff review portions of all STARS reports and institutions are welcome to seek additional forms of review, the data in STARS reports are not verified by AASHE. If you believe any of this information is erroneous or inconsistent with credit criteria, please review the process for inquiring about the information reported by an institution and complete the Data Inquiry Form.
