The recommendations from a senate inquiry into the framework for the prevention, investigation and prosecution of industrial deaths have been released by the Education and Employment References Committee.

The committee’s 34 recommendations are available online as part of the ‘They never came home’ report released in October.

The introduction of a nationally consistent industrial manslaughter offence into the model WHS, using the Queensland laws as a starting point, is part of recommendation 13. The committee also recommends that Safe Work Australia expands its statistics to include deaths resulting from industrial diseases.
