Make a claim

Has an injury, illness, or dangerous incident occurred at your workplace?

Depending on the seriousness, an employer may need to notify Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) of the incident. Unsure if you need to notify of an incident? Read more about incidents.

If a worker was injured, you can also report an injury and/or make a claim for workers' compensation with WorkCover Queensland or a self-insurer. Read about injuries and claims.

To notify of an incident and make a claim at the same time, use the 'incident & claim' option below.

You can also call 1300 362 128 to notify of an incident and make a claim.
