Intimidating WHS inspectors not acceptable

11 November 2016

A recent decision made by the Industrial Court acts as a strong deterrent to anyone using intimidating or improper behaviour to hinder SafeWork SA’s work health and safety (WHS) inspectors, whilst executing their regulatory duties.

The Industrial Court convicted Gepps Cross based businessman Mr Angelo DiCesare under section 190 of the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 (SA) for attempting to intimidate a SafeWork SA inspector, imposing a fine of $5 000 plus court costs.
