The Queensland Coroner has found that, in the course of carrying out work for, and at the direction of the employer, a worker was exposed to a risk to her safety and subsequently sustained fatal injuries.  The employer had directed the worker to use a cherry picker in an inherently unsafe manner and for a purpose contrary to its design.  In addition, the machine had a number of faults which may have contributed to the incident.  Also, the worker had not been provided with any training as to the appropriate and safe use of the equipment prior to the incident.  However Workplace Health and Safety Queensland eventually withdrew its prosecution of the employer because Charles Eden died in January 2013, and his wife Margaret Eden had no input or control over the conduct of the business at the time of the incident.  The Coroner found it wouldn’t be in the public interest to proceed to inquest because no further matters required investigation.
