Gretley Disaster - Surveyor Acquitted

 

A Full Bench of the New South Wales Industrial Relations Commission has overturned the previous finding by a single judge, Staunton J, that the surveyor at the Gretley mine was “concerned in the management of” the Corporation, and therefore guilty of an offence under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000.

 

In a 370 page decision, the charges against the Surveyor Mark Robinson have been dismissed and no conviction recorded.
