Workplace Manslaughter Conference

27 May  2020 | Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne

Register Your Interest


Victoria’s new Workplace Manslaughter laws will come into effect by 1 July 2020. The penalties are the toughest in Australia, with fines of up to $16.5 million for body corporates, and a jail term of up to 20 years for individuals

It is now necessary for organisations to turn their attention towards compliance.

Employers ensure prove policies, systems and processes are fit for purpose, put in practice and working as intended to deliver the right safety outcomes.

But how can employers ensure the right safety outcomes are met under the conditions made by the new laws?

The conference will bring together legal experts, leading OHS professionals, as well as relevant regulatory bodies in Victoria and other jurisdictions to provide answers and solutions to key questions and challenges, including:

Key topics:

  • Detailed analysis of the new laws and circumstances they can be applied
  • What the shift from ‘recklessness’ to ‘gross negligence’ means for employers
  • Developments in industrial manslaughter legislation across Australian jurisdictions, including in WA and the NT
  • Review workplace risks and systems with experts particularly for high risk industries
  • Overcoming challenges to building positive safety culture and preventing a culture of blame
  • How to ensure the ‘right safety outcomes’ are achieved
  • The investigative role of the regulator, and powers to prosecute
  • Considerations including fitness for work, mental health, drug and alcohol testing, bullying, harassment and discrimination
