The eduSafe Plus reporting system can be accessed  here (login required). 

eduSafe Plus is the Department’s hazard, incident and injury reporting system for incidents that have, or could have, resulted in injury to staff, visitors or contractors. It allows all Department employees to report incidents, injuries and hazards themselves, or on behalf of other employees.

When lodged, the reports go to the employee’s line manager for appropriate action.

All Department employees are responsible for reporting workplace hazards, injuries and near misses as soon as practicable through eduSafe Plus. Refer to Defined Health and Safety Terms (chapter 4 of this Guidance) for a definition of ‘hazard’, ’injury’, ‘workplace incident’ and ‘near miss’.

eduSafe Plus allows all Department employees to report incidents and hazards themselves, or on behalf of other employees, contractors, visitors and volunteers.

Visitors, volunteers and contractors who are unable to access eduSafe Plus should fill out the relevant forms below:

Completed forms should be provided to the principal, manager or business manager. Details should then be entered in eduSafe Plus.

All workplaces should ensure the eduSafe Plus Poster is placed on OHS notice boards throughout the workplace. 

Schools must follow the Department’s Reporting and Managing School Incidents (including emergencies) Policy when managing school incidents, including incidents that require reporting on eduSafe Plus.

If you require assistance or support using eduSafe Plus, please contact the OHS Advisory Service:
