A huge thank you to Greg Smith from Wayland Legal and Jackson McDonald for volunteering his time last week to present to members of the Australian Institute of Health & Safety (‘AIHS’). Greg was the defence counsel for Mark Withers, the first company director in Australia to be imprisoned for gross negligence for a workplace fatality. The gross negligence conviction is expected to pave the way for future industrial manslaughter prosecutions. Mark had provided permission for Greg to share the learnings from the case.
