Mining incident reporting

To report an incident at a mining operation contact SafeWork SA by calling 1800 777 209 - this line operates 24/7 - with on-call inspectors available after-hours.

Mine Operators (as the PCBU) must notify SafeWork SA as soon as practicable after having become aware of the incident and via the fastest means available. In most cases, this is by telephone.

SafeWork SA may request confirmation of incident details in writing within 48 hours of your telephone notification.

You may also notify SafeWork SA in writing by email or fax using the Notifiable Incident and Mining Incident Report Form (PDF 320KB) but please do not use this form to report immediately life threatening issues or a death.

If you have any questions about a work-related incident: contact our Help Centre on 1300 365 255.
