General reporting

Report all potential hazards to your OHS coordinator unless you can satisfactorily manage them immediately.

You should report all other hazards to your OHS coordinator. Some will need to be recording in writing (e.g. building maintenance, hazards with legal or insurance implications). In some organizations, the procedure is to make a decision at a staff meeting.

Report all potential accidents and incidents (including near-misses) in writing to your OHS coordinator, unless you can satisfactorily manage them immediately.

Unless you have been told to use other forms, please use these:

Inspection form for offices (For non-office occupations, you should write a new form that includes all normal hazards.)

Form for reporting hazards

Form for reporting action to manage risks

Job safety analysis (Form for analyzing particular jobs or projects before starting. Use it to identify hazards and report risk management.)


Do you understand this?

Yes, I'm ready to go on.

No, I need to reread it.
