In many states Industrial Manslaughter laws are in place. Even in NSW and in other jurisdictions, such as South Australia or Tasmania, employers can be prosecuted for workplace fatalities under general workplace safety laws. Penalties can be imposed of up to $3 million or imprisonment for up to 5 years.

This course aims to provide practical information on how individuals and Boards can protect themselves and their organisation from legal sanctions associated with a fatal or serious injury.
