Are you aware of a notifiable event which has occurred in your area, but you haven’t got around to reporting it? The opportunity still exists to provide your notifiable event report to the Legal & Risk Branch – but it needs to be done before Monday 14 December 2020.
A notifiable event may be a consequence, fact, event, situation, omission, occurrence, activity or failure to do something that could result in a claim against the University. Examples include: damage to property or equipment, accidents or injuries occurring during University activities (including clinical trials), complaints, or a threat of legal action.
Reporting notifiable events ensures the University can use the insurance it purchases for its people, assets and activities. Anyone can report a notifiable event: staff, students, titleholders, volunteers, visitors, contractors and staff of controlled entities.
Please review matters within your schools, faculties, branches and business units and report any and all notifiable events or potential claims to the Legal & Risk Branch. If you previously notified an event, and have an update, let us know about that too.
Any new events that arise after 14 December 2020 need to be notified through firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as they occur, or as soon as they become known to you, and before 31 December 2020 to attract the benefit of the insurance cover.
