ANTI-CORRUPTION INSPECTORS CONFIRMED

NSW Attorney General Mark Speakman has announced the appointment of Gail Furness SC as the Inspector of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) and Bruce McClintock SC as the Inspector of the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC). Mr Speakman said the merit-based appointments will bring significant legal experience and knowledge to the roles. Both Ms Furness and Mr McClintock will commence five-year terms on July 1, 2022. The Inspector of the ICAC is an independent statutory role responsible for oversight of the ICAC, an independent body established to combat corruption and improve the integrity of the NSW public sector. The LECC detects, investigates and exposes serious misconduct within the NSW Police Force and the NSW Crime Commission, and independently monitors and reviews those agencies’ investigation of complaints about the conduct of their officers.

FORKLIFT SAFETY BLITZ IMPOSED

SAFEWORK NSW has started a Forklift Safety Blitz until the end of July.
 
Following recent tragic fatalities, 30 SafeWork NSW safety inspectors will proactively visit workplaces across the State to conduct forklift compliance safety checks and provide educational material.
 
NSW Minister for Fair Trading Eleni Petinos said that safety was one of her key priorities and that is why SafeWork is stepping up their compliance and education efforts.
 
“From today until the end of July, SafeWork NSW inspectors will visit upwards of 600 workplaces to conduct compliance safety checks and provide the necessary support,” Ms Petinos said.
 
“Our message today is clear – think about safety before you operate a forklift, check the area is clear of pedestrians, the load is secure and you have enough room to use the forklift safely.
 
“Inspectors will also be issuing fines for safety breaches if businesses and drivers are caught doing the wrong thing but will also be building strong working relationships to embed a culture of forklift safety.”
 
The Forklift Safety Project has been running since June 2021 with efforts stepped up since March this year.
