End of year insurance deadlines: last chance to report notifiable events
As we approach the end of the year, it’s time to review matters within your schools, faculties, branches and business units and report any 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.
A notifiable event is something that could result in a claim against the University – for example, damage to property or equipment, an adverse event in a human research project, a complaint or threat of legal action.
Reporting notifiable events ensures the University can use the insurance it purchases when required for its people, assets and activities. Anyone can report a notifiable event: staff, students, titleholders, volunteers, visitors, contractors and staff of controlled entities.
The deadline for reporting notifiable events is Monday 13 December 2021. Any new events that arise after this date need to be notified to the Legal and Risk Branch as soon as they occur, or as soon as they become known to you, and before 31 December 2021 to attract the benefit of insurance cover.
