    I have a Safeworking ticket valid till Nov16.

    An instruction was issued which states:

    - "every 3 months (Quarter) proof of Safeworking documentation need to be submitted, otherwise, lose Safeworking ticket."

    I sent the Safeworking documentation to the wrong email address and the same email was sent to the safety coach of Safe Work Australia, yet I still lost it.

    2 issues;

    1- no warnings/notifications were sent prior to the end of every quarter.

    2- the safety coach accepted the documentation as the proof should include the original email which satisfies her criteria. However, her manager didn't accept the documentation and considered it as a late submission.

    My question is:

    1- Can they cancel Safeworking tickets even though there is a proof (sent to the wrong email) that it was sent on time?

    2- Can they cancel tickets without sending any prior warnings/notifications?

    2. Looks like you had notification, via the issued instruction.
