Incident Reporting

RiskWare is the University’s online system for reporting and managing incidents, injuries and hazards across all campuses.

To comply with the WHS Policy, all staff (including casuals) are required to use RiskWare to report any incidents, injuries or hazardous situations. You can also report an incident on behalf of other people, such as colleagues, students, contractors or visitors.

All incident reports must be submitted within 24 hours of the incident.

If full details of the incident, injury, investigation and corrective actions are not available within this time-frame, the essential details of the incident or injury as they are known should be submitted initially.

How to report incidents online

Detailed instructions are available here on the University's WHS website.
