Dear Ms Hennessy,
I operate a business in Victoria and am concerned about new workplace manslaughter laws.
I am committed to workplace safety in my business and consider that any workplace death is one too many.
However, the proposed laws will impose very significant penalties on business and it is vital that the Government gets them right.
The new laws need to have workplace safety as their primary focus and be workable, fair and avoid unintended negative outcomes.
I support the Victorian Chamber's advocacy on this matter and urge you consult widely with business to ensure that these laws will improve workplace safety, business and jobs.
