No prosecution for Falls Festival crowd crush
The incident took place at Ash Sounds Pty Ltd’s Falls Music and Arts Festival in Lorne last year.
During the festival, 19 people were hospitalised and 76 required first aid, after they were trampled and crushed in a crowd surge on 30 December 2016.
WorkSafe’s investigation revealed that all the conditions imposed by various bodies in relation to the event, such as crowd control, crowd size, and positioning and size of exits, had been met.
As a result, WorkSafe found there was insufficient evidence to establish any offence under the 2004 OHS Act and no further action will be taken.
