Court summaries

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland actively enforces the law, and historically prosecuted alleged offenders under the prosecutions framework prior to the establishment of the independent Office of the Work Health and Safety Prosecutor (OWHSP) on 18 March 2019.

View court summaries in a given year below.

For information on prosecutions commencing 18 March 2019, visit owhsp.qld.gov.au.

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.
