About this course
With the aim of combating workplace fatalities, four states in Australia have enacted legislation to criminalise workplace manslaughter.
Workplace manslaughter laws have been introduced in the ACT, Northern Territory, Queensland, and Victoria. If you have staff that operate in any of these states, regardless of where your head office is based, you will be liable to meet these laws and be held accountable if a breach occurs.
The laws make negligent conduct that causes workplace fatalities a criminal offence, punishable with severe penalties.
