Roles and Responsibilities
Staff members (including casuals) are required to use RiskWare to report an incident, injury, or hazardous situation.
Managers (or their delegates) are required to use RiskWare to manage incidents and hazards that are reported within their area of authority. RiskWare also provides reporting tools and charts that provide an overview of safety within a faculty/unit.
Although managers can delegate their use of RiskWare to an appropriate nominee, the ultimate responsibility for OHS, including the management of reported incidents and OHS risks, remains with the line manager.
Students, affiliates, contractors and visitors are required to advise a staff member if they are involved in an incident/sustain an injury, or identify a hazardous situation so that these can be entered into RiskWare for actioning.
Departmental Safety Officers will receive an email notification of incidents reported from their department. They will contact the relevant supervisor to discuss investigation or assessment of the incident or hazard and suitable actions needed to prevent a future occurrence.
