It is the classic case of; Do as I say, not as I[…]

I’m a massive fan of 5AA’s Leon Byner so when I heard him intro a segment yesterday that involved Occupational Health and Safety, of course I’m all ears! His introduction blurb was superb as always. He spoke about the need for a rigorous random workplace inspection protocol followed by the enforcement of the legislation –[…]

The above snippet is taken from South Australian Parliament HANSARD – from our Legislative Council in September 2011. We agree with Minister Wortley in this comment. The functions of SafeWork SA are of very high importance and the work undertaken needs to be of a very high standard. If that were more the reality, perhaps[…]
