10 February 2012

On 10 February 2012, a tree lopper sustained serious injuries after being struck by a chainsaw and falling out of a tree. The incident was not reported until the injured person contacted WorkCover several months later. 

After a WorkCover investigation the defendant Ali Mohamed Eli Ibrahim was charged with two breaches of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011, section 38 (failing to notify a serious incident) and section 39 (not preserving the site of a serious incident).

On 9 October 2013, the defendant pleaded guilty to both charges and was convicted by the Local Court and fined a total of $2000 and was ordered to pay the costs of the prosecution.
