Self-Insurance consultation phase closed and new incident and hazard reporting tool

16 February 2017

The formal application consultation period closed on 31 January 2017 after 18 weeks of consultation.The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) webpage and the functional email will remain open until further notice and will be used for additional project communication requirements. If you have further queries from today, do not hesitate to email them through to self-insurance@anu.edu.au or raise them with safety officers and at Work Health and Safety (WHS) meetings in your area. Thank you for your contributions to safety, health and wellbeing at Australia’s national University.

Over the coming months a new incident and hazard reporting tool will be introduced and rolled out across the University, with a projected live date of 1 July 2017. This new reporting tool will assist ANU to better manage risk, improve incident reporting and provide better assistance to injured workers by:

  • proactively identifying hazards
  • facilitating automated communication through notifications
  • easily identifying trends through dashboards and standard reports.

Staff will now be able to log an incident from their desktop, laptop or a mobile phone device. Timely lodgement of information can often be problematic, however, this new reporting tool will allow for users to capture key information in an offline capacity and sync in with the system when reconnected to the internet.

Planning is underway for extensive university-wide communication and education pieces to inform the University community about the new system roll-out. Face-to-face training sessions at as well a Pulse module will be made available to all University staff on an ongoing basis.  More details will be available online in the coming weeks.
