A Senate committee has recommended the adoption of a national approach to industrial manslaughter laws, proposing that existing Queensland laws be used as a template. However, in its response to the committee’s recommendation, the federal government indicated that it is against the proposal, stating that it is not realistic to suggest that such laws would end workplace deaths. It noted that there is scope for those found to be responsible for workplace deaths to be prosecuted under existing laws.
