A report in 'file lock' is not accessible until a System Administrator unlocks it. • REMEMBER ALWAYS LOG-OUT when leaving the RL6 Software. • FOR EMPLOYEE EVENTS (INCLUDING STUDENTS/FACULTY): • “EMPLOYEE EVENT” is a special icon regardless of the cause of event (fall, needle stick, etc) • For reporting an employee event, with or without actual injury, be sure to select the “employee event” icon. • DO NOT USE fall, infection, etc. for EMPLOYEE events. You will be unable to complete the report since “Employee” is NOT a choice for “Type of Person Affected/Involved” when using the other icons.
