Incident Notification Fact Sheet

The Work Health and Safety Act (WHS Act) requires the regulator to be notified of certain ‘notifiable incidents’. This fact sheet will help you decide whether the regulator needs to be notified of a work-related injury, illness or dangerous incident under the Act.

In December 2015 the Incident Notification information sheet was revised to include further clarification and examples about the types of incidents to be notified.
