Health of Gorgon Project workers must come before profit: Greens

Greens spokesperson for Industrial Relations and Worker Safety Hon Alison Xamon MLC has expressed outrage following allegations of the Government’s failure to hold Chevron to account for exposing its workers to toxic chemicals on the Gorgon LNG project.

“It is now two years since the Project began, I dread to think the degree to which workers may have been exposed to toxic substances over that time,” she said.

“Allowing Chevron another year to get its house in order is ludicrous.


123. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:

I refer to the ability of police officers to use the Criminal Injuries Compensation Act 2003 to recover losses not covered under the Western Australia Police Industrial Agreement.

(1)  Will the government amend section 42(3) of the act so that compensation for the purpose of that section does not include sick leave and medical expenses paid by the WA Police Force to injured police officers?
