Coronial recommendations following an investigation into the workplace death of Guy Redman Clark this week are too damning to overlook.
The fact the state's independent workplace health and safety regulator failed to identify and interview anyone who carried out electrical work on a wrongly wired dishwasher that contributed to Mr Clark's death at the Holy Cow Cafe at Pyengana in 2015 demonstrates some serious flaws.
The fact they also defied a court order to provide an incomplete file suggests there is a level of arrogance and lack of empathy.
The organisation has bolstered its investigating stocks, however, more needs to be done to ensure thorough investigations are carried out in a timely matter.
No one should die at work, but when tragedies occur families should feel some level of comfort that justice will prevail and the incident will be adequately investigated without lengthy delays.
Families will never get their loved ones back but they all deserve to be able to have faith in the system and full investigations will be carried out in the wake of such tragedy.
That was not the case in this instance and the Clark family deserves an apology, which has not been forthcoming from WorkSafe Tasmania, despite a spokesman acknowledging the coroner's recommendation and extending condolences to the family.
These kind of organisations need to be held to account and questions need to be answered as to the process undertaken to ensure such loopholes don't become standard practice.
The second recommendation that residual current devices should be installed in all workplaces needs to be seriously considered.
Yes, it would be expensive, but in an age where putting a jacket on the back of your chair due to safety concerns becomes the norm, circuit breakers helping prevent lethal electrocutions seems common sense.
There is no price on a person's life.
And, as Mr Cooper said, the appropriate authorities should begin the necessary steps to make this mandatory without delay.
