THE Queens­land Gov­ern­ment will in­tro­duce the new of­fence of “neg­li­gence caus­ing death” fol­low­ing an in­terim rec­om­men­da­tion from the Best Prac­tice Re­view of Work­place Health and Safety. Em­ploy­ment Min­is­ter Grace Grace said in­de­pen­dent re­viewer Tim Lyons had writ­ten to her ad­vis­ing of his pre­lim­i­nary view that the of­fence should be cre­ated. “The scope of the re­view is much wider than this is­sue and in­cludes an au­dit of work health and safety laws, pro­ce­dures, in­spec­tions, in­ves­ti­ga­tions and pros­e­cu­tions,” Ms Grace said.
