Company fined over Ettamogah blasting incident

A company has been convicted and fined $300,000 for breaching the WHS Act following a blasting incident north of Albury more than three years ago.

The company was also convicted and fined $12,000 at the District Court of New South Wales for failing to notify the Regulator of the incident.

The convictions relate to an April 2018 incident, where members of the public were forced to take cover to avoid being struck by flyrock.

In addition, the company’s director was fined $22,500 for breaching section 32 of the WHS Act by failing to ensure that his acts or omission did not adversely affect the health and safety of others.
