Based on what?


Because such large fines are so rare, it must have been pretty bad. But I don't care if I'm wrong on that point; that's not my concern. I'm concerned about the light sentence to the driver.

I know of a workcover rort...back "injury".....that netted the fella $487,000. That was considered to be a good outcome for the employer, in spite of the video evidence and testimony of spies, friends and fellow workers that the bloke had no issues carrying on an active, sporting lifestyle post "injury". I'm aware of how Altus and other larger T/M companies work (and more importantly how the employees/contractors work), and to be honest while I shouldn't be surprised by the outcome, I am....

But yeah, it's things like this that lead to many wondering how to link worksite OH&S outcomes to everyday cycling.
