Court summaries

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland actively enforces the law, prosecuting alleged offenders under the prosecutions framework.

View court summaries in a given year.

Where there has been a successful prosecution but an order was made that no conviction was to be recorded, we have removed information from the court summary to avoid breach of the court's order and infringement of section 12 of the Penalties and Sentences Act 1992.
