Complaints

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, WorkCover Queensland, the Electrical Safety Office, and the Workers' Compensation Regulator are all part of the Office of Industrial Relations (OIR). We are working together to make it easier for Queenslanders to get information about safety and workers' compensation issues and are committed to providing excellent customer service. If you believe we have made a mistake, or our service doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know.

We take customer complaints seriously and have a clear and consistent process to ensure they are resolved quickly and fairly. We encourage customers to raise their concerns directly with the person they are dealing with (or their direct manager). However, if you are not happy with the outcome from this step, you can:

  • make a complaint online using our online form
  • print out and complete the complaint form (PDF, 124.28 KB) and send to the Complaints Advisor at GPO Box 2459, Brisbane QLD 4001 or fax 1300 651 387, Attention: Complaints Advisor.

Your complaint will be handled by the person who has the authority to deal with it—usually the manager of the business area you are dealing with. If this person is not able to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, the matter will be escalated to an appropriate member of our management team.

All written complaints for WorkCover Queensland are centrally coordinated according to our complaints policy to ensure they are properly investigated and responded to within agreed timeframes.

All written complaints for Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, Electrical Safety Office, and Workers' Compensation Regulator are managed in accordance with the OIR Customer complaints management policy(PDF, 674.46 KB) .

If you disagree with the final outcome of your complaint you can contact the Queensland Ombudsman by visiting their web site at http://www.ombudsman.qld.gov.au/ or phoning them on 1800 068 908.
