Event description
Keep employees safe or risk facing jail time or significant fines in Victoria.

About this Event

The Victorian government has amended the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (OHS Act) to include the crime of industrial manslaughter. Employers found guilty of industrial manslaughter can face penalties of up to 20 years in jail and $16.5 million in fines.

The changes to the OHS Act cover deaths caused by the negligence of the employer or by any breach of the OHS Act and will extend to mental injuries, including trauma from bullying or other forms of abuse, endured on the job, as well as accidents and illnesses caused by unsafe workplaces.

This legislation applies to employers whose disregard for safety (dangerous workplaces or failing to provide suitable mental support) results in a death of a worker.

Emverio Workplace Solutions is proud to offer you an opportunity to update your knowledge directly with experts in the industry about how to protect yourself and your staff and keep a safe work environment.
