Investigation and Prosecution Arrangements at SafeWork SA

A review into the investigation and prosecution arrangements within SafeWork SA for offences under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012  (SA) has been conducted by a senior prosecutor from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, and was finalised in June 2017.

This review was a broad consideration of how matters handled by SafeWork SA are investigated and, where appropriate, prosecuted.

Under the supervision of SafeWork SA's new Executive Director, Martyn Campbell, and Director of Investigations, Deb McLean, the organisation is moving forward with the implementation of these recommendations, to ensure SafeWork SA fulfils its role as an agile and flexible investigator/regulator in the most effective manner possible.
