Recording the provision of care resulting from a student or staff incident, injury or illness, including the administration of first aid
When first aid has been administered to staff the incident is to be reported on eduSafe (staff login required).
All actions taken in the provision of care resulting from a student incident, injury or illness, including the administration of first aid, must be recorded. This includes the student’s presentation, the staff member’s assessment of their condition, any treatment provided, and outcomes. This information must be recorded in eduSafe Plus or the school’s preferred third party platform.
When using eduSafe Plus, if the care is provided following a recorded incident, the details can be recorded through the eduSafe Plus Incident form. For all other presentations, the eduSafe Plus Sick Bay form should be used.
For incidents that are deemed to be notifiable to WorkSafe, see Notifiable Incident to Work Safe . A reference number, if required, can be obtained by calling WorkSafe on 13 23 60 and completing the WorkSafe Incident Notification within 48 hours of notification to WorkSafe.
When relevant, counselling should be offered to affected staff through the department’s Employee Assistance Program by calling 1300 361 008.
