The Department of Labour has charged the employer of a man murdered at work with an offence under the HSE Act. Safeguard understands this is the first time a charge has been laid under the act following a homicide.

Security guard Charanpreet Singh Dhaliwal was killed on his first day on the job at a construction site in Henderson in November 2011. A man has since been charged with his murder.

Dhaliwal's employer, CNE Security, has been charged with failing to maintain a safe workplace.

The Council of Trade Unions has asked the DoL to consider also charging Fulton Hogan, the company in control of the work site.
