Peer Reviewed Publication: Hopkins, Andrew. “Chapter 5”, in Lessons from Gretley: Mindful Leadership and the Law (Sydney: CCH, 2007).
This working paper is part of a proposed larger work on individual culpability for corporate OHS offences. It is therefore not fully self-contained. It may be useful to read first the companion working paper, “The Gretley Coal Mine Disaster: Reflections on the Finding that Mine Managers were to Blame.” The present paper deals with some of the arguments mounted by business groups following the Gretley convictions. Comments and corrections are invited.
