Newcastle Stevedores Pty Limited

Jeremy Kennedy acted on behalf of Newcastle Stevedores in a multi-faceted investigation by Workcover NSW, Australian Maritime Safety Authority and the Police/ Coroner in relation to a fatality occurring on board a ship whilst loading for the transport of aluminium ingots where a stevedore was fatally injured when the ingot packs collapsed in the ship’s hold. This including formulating a comprehensive enforceable undertaking in order to achieve no prosecution of the company or its directors.
