Review Recommends Industrial Manslaughter Introduction

Former Safe Work Australia executive director Marie Boland, recently made 34 recommendations including a call for an industrial manslaughter offence to be implemented nationwide.

Industrial manslaughter laws are currenly in effect in the ACT and Queensland. Labour has pledged to introduce the laws in NSW and Victoria.

The federal government said it would not support a national industrial manslaughter law, saying that the law did not bring down the rate of workplace deaths since being introduced in The ACT.

The mother of Ben Catanzariti, the young worker killed on a construction site, has been adamantly calling for consistent workplace laws across Australia. Ms Catanzariti said it would be easier to make companies do the right thing if uniform laws were introduced throughout the country.

An industrial manslaughter charge would make employers more liable for gross negligence or workplace fatalities.

Steven Asnicar is regarded as a leader across many fields of industry. In particular, his specialisation across the health, infrastructure, construction, resource and utility sectors has seen him successfully change the dynamics of these industries through the introduction of new strategic, marketing, training and technical frameworks. Steven works closely with industry peak bodies such as Safework Australia, Australian Logistics Council, National Advisory for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (NATESE) and the Council of Australian Governments in the development of new delivery standards and industry specific programs.
