Roles and Responsibilities

All workers (including casuals and affiliates) are required to use RiskWare to report any work related incident, injury, or hazardous situation.

Managers (or their delegates) are required to use RiskWare to record and manage actions relating to incidents and hazards that are reported within their area of authority.

Although managers can delegate their use of RiskWare to an appropriate nominee, the ultimate responsibility for work health and safety, including the management of reported incidents and WHS risks, remains with the line manager.

Students, affiliates, contractors and visitors usually do not have staff unikey access to RiskWare, therefore they must inform a staff member if they are involved in an incident, sustain an injury, or they identify a hazardous situation relating to University work. The staff member will arrange for the details to be recorded in RiskWare for actioning.
