Hazard and incident reporting
Hazard and incident reporting is an essential component in the management of Workplace Health and Safety (WHS). The reporting of hazards and incidents assists with the achievement of a healthy and safe work environment by ensuring that all identified hazards can be brought to the attention of personnel who can eliminate or minimise any health and safety risks to an acceptable level.
The University uses SafetyNet to manage hazard and incident reporting.
Providing immediate and effective first aid to workers or others who have been injured or become ill at the workplace may reduce the severity of the injury or illness and promote quicker recovery. Trained first aiders, first aid equipment and facilities appropriate to the nature of the likely risks are required to be available in the workplace.
For more information about first aid, including guidelines and contacts, refer to the First Aid page.
