Every week in every state and territory a business owner/manager is in court before a magistrate facing Health & Safety charges being laid by the authority (WorkSafe, WorkCover, SafeWork) in each jurisdiction.
In most cases relatively small $ fines are handed out and the business leaves with a conviction recorded. All to often this is followed by a litigation lawyer who is on a “cut of the action” representing the person/s who was/were injured. The business now has a conviction against them so there is no defence. It is just when & how much.
