Make a claim

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

Depending on the seriousness, you may need to notify 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 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.
