Report an incident or hazard
The Safety And Risk Analysis Hub (S.A.R.A.H.), is the University's online reporting tool and provides staff and students with a user-friendly way to report occupational health and safety (OHS) related hazards and incidents.
The S.A.R.A.H. reporting tool helps to ensure that all hazards, incidents and near misses involving Monash University staff, students, visitors and contractors are reported, investigated and recorded in accordance with Victorian OHS legislation and Monash University's Managing OHS Hazard and Incidents Procedure.
