Report an incident
Understand whether an incident is notifiable and how to report it.
Report health and safety incidents
Depending on the incident, there are a number of other important actions you may need to take, including notifying WorkSafe and preserving the scene if possible and if safe to do so.
If the situation is still dangerous or high-risk, call emergency services immediately on 000
However, incident scenes can be disturbed if necessary to:
- protect a person's health or safety
- help someone who is injured
- make the area safe (for example, if a person with a confirmed diagnosis of coronavirus (COVID-19) has attended the workplace during the infectious period, it is essential the site is cleaned and disinfected, in order to prevent further transmission of the virus)
We'll lodge details of the incident and email you a link to an online incident notification form.
WorkSafe will then advise if an inspector will make a site visit and whether the incident scene can be disturbed before the inspector's attendance.
Call 13 23 60.
Once you have completed and submitted the online incident notification form, you will receive a confirmation email with a copy of your records.
If you are having trouble completing the online incident notification form, download a print copy of the incident notification form, and email the completed form to: [email protected] or post to:
PO BOX 279
Geelong VIC 3220.
You are required to keep a record of the form for at least five years.
