The Industrial Court convicted labour hire employer, Big Mars Pty Ltd, this week for failing to provide a safe system of work and failing to provide information, instruction, training and supervision.

On 6 November 2013, a temporary migrant from Taiwan, Yu Hsiang Hsiao, fell into a bath of caustic soda. Mr Hsiao suffered severe burns which left him hospitalised for more than three months.
