What happens to my accident/incident once it is reported?

The accident/incident will be investigated the Work Health and Safety (WHS) Unit, who may contact you to gather more information and determine what reasonable actions the University can take to prevent a recurrence. If relevant and you select a supervisor or topic coordinator, this person will also be involved in the investigation.  It is important to record accurate details and to be as specific as you can be, including contact details.  Please remember to add ‘Involved / Injured Persons and Witnesses’ (people involved in the incident and any witnesses as well).
