Labor Minister must fess us about WorkSafe investigations

Labor’s new Minister for Workplace Safety, Ingrid Stitt must come clean about WorkSafe’s investigation into Labor’s hotel quarantine debacle.

Former Labor Minister, Adem Somyurek has rightly described Labor’s hotel quarantine mess as “the worst public policy disaster in Australian history.”

Labor’s hotel quarantine fiasco has cost over 750 Victorians their lives, destroyed the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands more and locked up millions of Victorians in their homes.

Ms Stitt, in one of her first actions as a Minister must answer the following questions:

  • Which government departments and agencies are being investigated by WorkSafe for their role in the hotel quarantine program?

  • Which department staff, including department secretaries, are being investigated by WorkSafe for their role in the hotel quarantine program?

  • Most importantly, which Labor Ministers are being investigated by WorkSafe for their role in the hotel quarantine program?

Labor’s Attorney-General, Jill Hennessey has confirmed that the Ministers of the Crown are subject to penalties for failure to uphold workplace safety laws, including potential charges of industrial manslaughter.

The Liberal Nationals have also written to WorkSafe requesting details of the investigations currently being undertaken as a result of Labor’s hotel quarantine disaster.

Victorians have lost confidence in Daniel Andrews’ ability to govern Victoria with his government’s incompetence costing over 750 Victorians their lives and being responsible for over 18,000 COVID infections.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Workplace Safety, Nick Wakeling:

“Labor’s new Minister must come clean on who is under WorkSafe investigation for Labor’s hotel quarantine disaster.

“The Victorian community has a right to know if Labor Ministers are being investigated for their incompetent management of hotel quarantine.

“The incompetence of Daniel Andrews and his Ministers have cost over 750 Victorians their lives and they must be accountable for what is the worst public policy failure in Australian history.”
