What is RiskWare?

Riskware is an online system for reporting and managing incidents, injuries, hazards and WHS risks across the University of Sydney.

Key features:

  • single system for reporting and managing incidents, injuries, hazards and health and safety risks across all campuses of the University
  • user friendly system for staff to report incidents for themselves and on behalf of others e.g. staff, students and visitors
  • staff access from any computer - log in via myHRonline (look for My Health and Safety) or the Work Health & Safety website
  • complements current procedures for reporting and management as described in the WHS Policy and the Injury Management Policy
  • real time updating & tracking of incident information
  • corrective action plans to record actions taken to manage both incidents and hazards
  • email notification and automatic reminders of corrective actions
  • online management tools such as a register of hazards; risk assessment matrix; safe operating procedures; etc
  • data collation and comprehensive reporting.

RiskWare does not:

  • diminish the responsibilities of managers for the management of reported events
  • negate the need for workers to discuss with their managers the circumstances and corrective actions applicable to incidents, injuries and hazards.
