Report an Incident
If you have experienced or witnessed a safety issue or concern, no matter how big or small, let us know.
Your safety and well-being is of the utmost importance to us. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment, and reporting concerns is an important part of ensuring this.
If you have experienced any form of violence or harassment, sustained an injury or identified a potential hazard, we encourage you to reach out to us and let us help. Having a record of all incidents (even if no injury occurred) will allow us to take preventive action to address the concerns you have raised.
If you report an incident, your case will be treated confidentially and with respect. You are able to report anonymously should you wish. All incidents reported will be responded to within 24 hours (where contact details are provided).
