Speaking at The Safety Conference in Sydney (13th Oct 2004), Deacons partner Michael Tooma said that individual prosecutions for OHS offences were on the rise. Most jurisdictions had provisions making directors and persons concerned in the management of a corporation personally liable in relation to OHS breaches by their corporation. Due Diligence requires that an employer take every reasonable precaution to protect the welfare of all. He said that employers should ensure they had an effective OHS management system in place as a minimum defence. Fast Track provides an effective system through proactive notification of obligations, escalation of outstanding activities, and a fully comprehensive and integrated approach from prevention programs to rehabilitation.
