Incident Reporting

As soon as you become aware of an incident that may give rise to a claim under any of the University's insurance policies you must complete an online Hazards & Incidents report form (staff access only).

Examples of incidents that need to be reported include, but are not limited to:

  • Injury to a staff member travelling directly to or from work;
  • Injury to students while participating in approved University activities (e.g. lectures, placement etc).
  • Damage or loss of University property;
  • Accusations of libel or slander against staff or students.

All reasonable steps should be taken following an accident or loss to protect the property or person from any further damage or injury.

Human Resources Incident Reporting Guidelines are located at:

Student incidents that can not be reported through the online Hazards & Incidents report form should be reported to the Insurance Office by completing and submitting a Student Incident Report (FS24) form (PDF 75 kb - download Adobe Acrobat).

Failure to report an incident to the Insurance Office could result in our insurer refusing to indemnify the University for the claim.
