Code summary




Roles Affected

  • All staff, users, tenants, visitors and contractors 


This code describes how to the report and investigate SHE incidents, injuries, occupational ill health, near misses, vehicle incidents, fires/false alarms, and environmental incidents. The investigation of incidents to identify their root cause(s) is the most basic means by which we can minimise the potential for incidents to recur, to learn.

All SHE incidents that occur on STFC sites, irrespective of who is involved, staff, tenants, visitors, facility users and contractors should be reported. In addition all incidents involving staff when they are travelling on Council business or working at non-STFC sites/laboratories should be reported. Incidents should be reported through SHE Assur​e within 2 days of the event being identified.
