Safety and Wellbeing Reporting

An accurate report needs to be completed as soon as possible, but within 48 hours for any incidents, or near misses involving Ara staff, students, visitors, or contractors.

Please advise the Safety and Wellbeing Manager immediately in the event of a serious injury or incident.

If you are an Ara colleague, please complete an online incident report here.

If you are an Ara student, please contact a Tutor or Student Support person to report an incident on your behalf.

If you are a visitor or contractor, please contact the Ara leader who engaged you or who you were visiting.
