7.1.4 Notice of injury must be in writing


A notice of injury must have been given in writing to comply with the SRCA. The Act does not specify any particular form for a 'notice' other than it should be in writing. Thus, an accident report or an incident report or some notation in the Unit records may suffice. More significantly, a medical report or a clinical note indicating the subject injury occasioned attendance at a Regimental Aid Post, ship's sick bay or other ADF Health Service facility could reasonably be interpreted to be a 'notice' compliant with the Act.
