Report a safety hazard, incident or near miss

The University is committed to providing and maintaining a safe campus.

It is the responsibility of all staff, students, contractors, volunteers and visitors to report a safety related hazard, incident or near miss, no matter how minor they are.

What do I need to do?

If you’re involved in a hazard, incident or near miss on campus, then you need to report this as soon as possible to a UWA staff member. This could be your lecturer, tutor, immediate manager/supervisor or UWA host.

You must also promptly lodge a report into our UWA incident reporting system – Camms.

What can I expect?

Once your report is submitted, you’ll receive an automated email confirmation.

Your assigned UWA staff member will also receive an automated email notifying them of your submitted report and they are responsible for reviewing, actioning and closing the incident report.

What else do I need to know?

Find a self-help guide and video on how to report a safety hazard, incident or near miss using the UWA Incident Portal (Camms).

Who can I contact?
