Employers must notify us within 48 hours of becoming aware that someone has sustained a workplace injury or when an incident has occurred.
The incident must be reported even if the injured person doesn’t intend to make a claim. This is important because if their injury becomes worse over time and they need to seek treatment, there will be a record of the incident which may assist the claims process.
Reporting an injury also enables you to track (and address) potentially hazardous tasks or equipment in the workplace. Any workplace-related injuries and illnesses must also be recorded in the register of injuries, which all workplaces are required to keep.
