A School Injury / Incident Report Form has been created for schools to meet their legal obligations for the Workplace Injury Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2013 (WIRC) and to simplify the process for the recording and reporting of school injuries/incidents.
Schools are able to log in to the CEVN website and access the School Injury and Incident Report Form. The CEVN website is a secure intranet only accessible to personnel within the Catholic education system in Victoria.
If the workplace incident results in death, serious injury or exposes a person to an immediate health and safety risk, WorkSafe Victoria must be notified immediately by calling 13 23 60 and then in writing within 48 hours.
Employers who are in control of workplaces are required by law to notify WorkSafe Victoria about incidents using the Incident Notification form. Refer to the Guide to Incident Notification for more information.
