Prosecution Result Summaries

WorkSafe is responsible for prosecuting breaches of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004, the Accident Compensation Act 1985, the Dangerous Goods Act 1985, the Equipment (Public Safety Act) 1994, Workplace Injury Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2013 , and the regulations made under each Act.

WorkSafe publishes summaries of prosecutions that result in a plea of guilty or a finding of guilt against an accused party.  Prosecution result summaries from 2012 onwards are published in the searchable database below.

Enforceable Undertakings made pursuant to section 16 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 are also published to this database (from 2007 onwards).

For prosecution result summaries prior to 2012, please refer to the WokSafe's archived prosecution summaries database.  Due to technical difficulties with the maintenance of this database, the WorkSafe is unable to guarantee the accuracy or completeness of its content.  Complete lists of all prosecutions undertaken by the WorkSafe are also available in WorkSafe's Annual Reports.
