Report an injury or lodge a new claim

 

For workers

If you are a Victorian worker, you (or someone on your behalf) must record any injury or illness that might entitle you to compensation in your workplace’s Register of Injuries within 30 days of becoming aware of the injury or illness.

If you want to make a claim for compensation for a work-related injury or illness, you need to complete a Worker's Injury Claim Form and provide it to your employer for on-forwarding to EML.
