General Employee Safety
Reporting Safety Issues
APS complies with regulations governing injury and accident prevention and employee safety consistent with the needs of our industry. If you are ever in doubt about how to safely perform a job, it is your responsibility to ask your supervisor for assistance. Any suspected unsafe conditions and all injuries that occur on the job must be reported immediately. Compliance with these safety rules is considered a condition of employment. Each supervisor shall make the safety of employees an integral part of her/his regular management functions. Each employee shall accept and follow established safety regulations and procedures.

- Notify your supervisor and call the APS Risk Management Injury Reporting Hotline at (505) 830-8466.
- Submit completed New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Administration Notice of Accident Form to your supervisor within fifteen (15) days of the accident or injury. If an injury does not require medical attention, a Supervisor and Employee Report of Accident Form (add link to forms page) must still be completed in case medical treatment is later needed and to ensure that any safety hazards are corrected.
- Call 911 or seek immediate attention at the nearest hospital emergency facility.
Federal law requires that we keep records of all illnesses and accidents that occur during the workday. The New Mexico State Workers' Compensation Act also requires that you report any workplace illness or injury, no matter how slight. If you fail to report an injury, you may jeopardize your right to collect workers' compensation payments as well as health benefits.
Workers’ compensation fraud costs everyone. It is against state law. If you are aware of a potential fraud or abuse of the workers’ compensation system, report it using the Fraud Report Form. View Worker’s Compensation Information>>
