BIGGER AND BETTER
New bridge improves access to essential services:
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.
OPEN ROAD: Work is finished on Monto-Mt Perry Road bridge, with two lanes of traffic.
