Incidents and notifications
Find out what qualifies as a dangerous incident and whether you need to notify Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ).
In an emergency dial 000, do not touch the scene other than to administer first aid.
A death in the workplace is always investigated to find out what happened and to determine ways to prevent the same thing from happening again.
If an injury, illness or dangerous incident has occurred at your workplace use these forms and procedures to make a notification and/or insurance claim.
All electrical incidents must be reported to the Electrical Safety Office.
A notification must be submitted to WHSQ before certain asbestos and demolition work takes place. A workplace must also notify WHSQ regarding handling and storage of hazardous chemicals.
