  • Jail for scrapyard death in Victoria.

    Anyone notice a scrapyard owner was sentenced to 6 months jail for causing the death of an emplyee in an accident,said to be due to the poor condition of a scrapbin.........she also had no forklift licence,which the Workasfe made a big deal of,but shes obviously been operating one for many years........the state govt in Qld claim if an employee is killed at work.the employer can expect jail time.

    If the employer is negligent and fails to provide safe equipment, I would expect they would be severely punished - that would be the same in any industry these days!
