When Safety Action received our new 3M hearing protection Fit-Testing equipment recently we tested our CEO,
Gary Rowe. Gary was shocked to find he got zero (0) level of protection from a randomly selected pair of ear plugs he thought he had fitted correctly.
The final prosecution has now occurred over the 2013 incident that killed three pedestrians, when a wall of a site on Swanston St, Melbourne collapsed onto the footpath. Three separate companies have been fined over the incident.
Like many people, I have been questioning if the government’s heavy reliance on the ‘speed and energy’ approach to road safety is correct and if not, what is the correct solution if we are serious about road safety?
