WEBINAR: Changes to Victorian OH&S Legislation
In response to high numbers of workplace casualties in Australia, Victoria is introducing the Workplace Safety Legislation Amendment (Industrial Manslaughter and Other Matters) Bill 2019 (Vic). These new workplace manslaughter laws are set to come into effect by 1st July 2020.
Penalties under the new regime are the toughest in Australian history, attracting fines of up to $16.5 million for companies, associations or partnerships found to be in breach. Additionally, sole traders or officers who contravene Victoria’s new legislative framework could face serious gaol time of up to 20 years. Victoria will become the third Australian jurisdiction to make industrial manslaughter a criminal offence.
