    Australia: Anger at preventable workplace death By Amy Lawson
    The Labour Council of NSW is pushing for the State Government to implement what could become known as 'Joel's Law' - a criminal charge of industrial manslaughter, which would carry a maximum fine of $5 million and up to 25 years' jail.

    Labour Council secretary John Robertson said Joel's death 'reinforces the need to do something as quickly as possible'.

    'His life was stolen away largely because of inaction on behalf of his employer in looking after his wellbeing and safety,' he said.
