As regular readers of my blog would know I have, in the past, used video presentations to explain the concepts about occupational safety and healthcare, and in particular video case studies to look at court cases dealing with occupational safety and health prosecutions.
I am in the process of updating the platform that I use for my paid, online training programs. As a result, I will also be moving the free videos I provide as part of this blog.
Over the next few months, I will be transitioning the videos from this blog onto YouTube and Vimeo, where they will still be available for free.
If you cannot find a video on this blog, please let me know and I will make it available, but if you’re patient, most of the videos will be republished in the next few months.
My first reposted video deals with the case Fry v Keating, which is a Western Australian Supreme Court decision looking at the liability of individual company directors for breaches of occupational safety and health legislation. The original text of the post as well as the video is below.
Directors conviction in relation to workplace fatality upheld
On 23 April 2013 , the Western Australian Supreme Court confirmed the conviction and increased the penalties of two Company directors charged in relation to a workplace fatality. The charges against the Directors alleged “neglect” under section 55(1) of the Occupational Safety & Health Act 1984 (WA).
