Court-enforceable undertaking for Asciano

Wednesday, 30 September, 2009

Comcare has accepted a court-enforceable undertaking from Asciano Services (Asciano) after the employer allegedly failed to observe its duties under federal workplace safety laws.

The undertaking is a result of a Comcare investigation into an incident in November 2007 where a 76 tonne Vulcan mobile crane tipped over at the Adelaide Freight Terminal.

The investigation found that Asciano failed to take all reasonably practicable steps to provide and maintain a safe working environment.

Enforceable undertakings commit employers to do more than minimum compliance with workplace safety legislation.
