Vic wheel manufacturer charged for breaching workplace safety laws

A Victorian wheel manufacturer is facing charges over unsafe work practices following a number of incidents at a Mildura workshop between August 2018 and February 2020.

The company has been charged under s.21 of the OHS Act for failing to provide a safe workplace.

WorkSafe alleges the wheel manufacturer twice breached a section of the OHS Act by failing to provide instruction, training or supervision.

Victoria's workplace health and safety regulator further alleges the company contravened s.101 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations by failing to locate or guard operator controls against unintentional activation.
