Staff members should also log a report of an injury and promptly contact HR (via Service Central) if they sustain an injury in the workplace and wish to submit a workers' compensation claim. Accepted claims may result in the reimbursement of medical expenses, and access to rehabilitation and treatment services which can lead to quicker recovery times. Workers Compensation documentation can be submitted to HR through a Service Central request.

If students are injured, as a result of a learning activity, they should download a copy of their riskware report and email insurance.finance@acu.edu.au for more information about the University's Personal Accident (insurance) Policy.

riskware quick user reference guides for nominated supervisors

Nominated supervisors and other staff are notified by email when reports of incidents, injuries or hazards are submitted. These reports are then reviewed by these staff members and Action Plans are developed within riskware. This supports the university to either eliminate the hazard or reduce the risk of another incident occurring.

Nominated supervisors consult with their team about proposed treatments (control measures) to ensure that everyone is committed to applying these changes.
