When and how to notify a serious injury or illness, a death or dangerous incident
If there is a serious injury or illness, a death or a dangerous incident, you must report it to us immediately on 13 10 50.
A "notifiable incident" under the work health and safety legislation relates to:
- the death of a person
- a serious injury or illness of a person
- a potentially dangerous incident.
Significant penalties apply if you fail to notify us of an incident.
The incident site must be preserved until a SafeWork Inspector attends unless the inspector or regulator directs otherwise.
You must notify your insurer of the incident within 48 hours.
