Further charges laid for alleged chemical stockpiles

WorkSafe Victoria has charged Bradbury Industrial Services with breaching five offences under section 31C(1) of the Dangerous Goods Act in relation to alleged chemical stockpiles at three warehouses in Craigieburn and two in Campbellfield. WorkSafe Victoria alleges that for both sites, the company knew, or ought to have known, that its failure to take all reasonable precautions to prevent fire or explosion would endanger the safety or health of another person, property or the environment.

The charges are in addition to 35 already filed in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court in relation to the Craigieburn and Campbellfield sites. The company, now in liquidation, is also facing charges with three offences after an explosion and chemical fire at another Campbellfield warehouse in April 2019.

The latest charges have been listed for a further hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 21 October 2020.
