• Negative comment or action from the employer or PCBU
  • Worry that they will be blamed for the event
  • The paperwork or computer system for reporting is difficult
  • Reporting is time consuming
  • Don’t know how or who to report to.

To overcome barriers to reporting, keep the reporting forms and system easy and make sure it is “no blame”.  Let workers know how and who to report to.  This could include team leaders, managers or the health and safety representative.
