It is important to report all injuries, illnesses, hazards and near misses to a member of the University staff as soon as reasonably possible. If you notice a hazard or are involved in an incident, please inform a member of University staff so they can log a Health and Safety Incident Report on your behalf. Alternatively, contact the Health and Safety Team directly at usafe@newcastle.edu.au or call 4033 9999 and select number 5.
