Maddocks presents the New Victorian Workplace Manslaughter Legislation Session
New provisions apply from 1 July 2020 to create the statutory offence of workplace manslaughter, inserted into the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (Vic) (OHS Act). Employers, Officers (executives and Board members) and employees can be guilty of the offence. Individuals can face up to 20 years imprisonment while Body Corporates can be fined up to $16.5m (a tenfold increase on current penalties).
The introduction of the new legislation in Victoria represents a new era in workplace safety enforcement. This information session will help Victorian water corporation boards and executive to understand the new provisions and assess (or reassess) their critical safety risks to ensure they are meeting their duties.
