Greens OHS Update

Further to this morning’s article, the Victorian Greens provided the following information:

“The Greens believe that:

  • Every employee deserves to be safe in the workplace
  • Going to work should not involve putting lives at risk
  • Harsh penalties should be in place to deter employers from cutting corners on workplace safety
  • The law must provide justice for victims and families should preventable accidents occur in the workplace

Earlier this year, Nina Springle MP called on the Victorian Government to introduce corporate and industrial manslaughter laws. You can read more about it in the link below:

In other states around Australia, the Greens have continually been strong advocates for industrial manslaughter laws.”
