WHS charges upheld in notorious perlite-fatality case

Workplace safety, Jurisdiction, Legislation, regulation and caselaw, Issue/challenge/risk
A PCBU has unsuccessfully contended its fatality-related WHS charges should be dismissed for being "ambiguous" and "prolix". A superior court found the particulars of the charges clearly accused the PCBU of failing to ensure workers complied with safety rules for confined spaces, and creating the risk of almost certain death to any worker who fell because of that failure.
