Report an Event

What must be reported? 

Near miss (Hazard): An event not causing harm, but has the potential to cause injury or ill health. Any unplanned incidents that occurred on campus which, although not resulting in any injury or disease, had the potential to do so.

Incident (accident): An unplanned event that resulted in injury or ill health of ākonga, or damage or loss to property, plant, materials or the environment.

Positive Event Reporting

Is an event not causing harm but a H&S event that is working well.  Reporting these events help establish a positive health and safety culture and encourages and endorses good health and safety practices.
