SafeWork SA acknowledges the Coroner’s comments and his suggestion of an amendment to the WHS Act to clarify the agency’s role in the event of a workplace fatality. We also welcome the suggestion to collaborate more closely with SAPOL in investigating workplace fatalities. Our primary focus is ensuring workplaces are safe for all workers. We are already making significant organisational changes to the agency to improve our service and will factor the Coroner's comments into the broader organisational change program.
