    2.2 Recordable and Reportable Incidents

    All OSH incidents classified in Section 2.1 Injury, Illness and OSH Incident Classification should be recorded

    even though they may not need to be reported to ensure prompt investigation, to review control

    measures and to enable the collection of OSH data.

    A reportable incident is one that must be reported to ADEC OSH Section within a specified time frame

    (see Section 2.4 Reportable Incidents).

    2.3 Incident Reporting

    OSHAD-SF Form G Serious OSH Incident Notification should be used to officially report all reportable

    incidents involving employees, students, contractors or visitors. Form G must be completed and

    submitted within 24 hours of a reportable incident occurring (see section 2.4 below).

    Requirements for incident reporting must be communicated to all employees through the school OSH

    induction process and to contractors, students and visitors through other appropriate means.

    2.4 Reportable Incidents

    The following incidents require reporting to ADEC OSH Section. These include:

    Fatality (within 24 hours).

    Reportable dangerous occurrence (within 3 working days) see Appendix 2

    Reportable serious injury (within 3 working days) see Appendix 3

    Reportable occupational illness/disease (within 3 working days) see Appendix 4

    The OSH Officer or School Principal must notify ADEC OSH Section immediately via Emergency Contact

    Hotline (51620 6666), then complete and submit OSHAD-SF Form G within 24 hours. Other relevant

    authorities (e.g. Civil Defense) will also need to be notified.

    2.5 Site Preservation

    The site where a reportable incident has occurred must not be disturbed until the relevant authorities

    (e.g. Police, Civil Defense) arrive on site. However, necessary steps may be taken to:

    Protect the health and safety of persons;

    Assist an injured person involved in an incident;

    Prevent further damage to property or the environment.
