JCU policy stipulates that all staff, including casuals, as well as students are required to communicate work-related incidents, injuries or hazardous situations using RiskWare.
A work-related incident or hazard has two key elements:

A work-related incident can be:
A work-related hazard may be anything arising out of and during the course of employment that has the potential to cause injury or illness to people, or damage to plant or equipment.
