Reporting suspected fraud to Safe Work Australia

Reporting suspected fraud to Safe Work Australia 

This online form enables you to confidentially report suspected fraud related to Safe Work Australia's legislated functions and activities

As a national policy body, we develop national policy to improve work health and safety (WHS) and workers' compensation arrangements across Australia. 

We can only respond to and investigate tip-offs which relate to our functions and activities.

Reporting suspected fraud to other entities

This form is not for reporting suspected fraud that is unrelated to our activities or functions.

Safe Work Australia does not regulate WHS laws or administer workers’ compensation arrangements—this is done by the Commonwealth and each of the states and territories.

If your tip-off relates to the regulation or enforcement of WHS laws (e.g. a WHS complaint at a workplace) or to a workers’ compensation claim, please contact your state or territory WHS regulator or workers’ compensation authority

For further details on where to report suspected fraud, visit the Commonwealth Fraud Prevention Centre website.
