Mine Accident Probe Re-opened After Nine Years

Australia . After nine years, the case of Gregory Aspinall, who died after a mine roof collapsed on him in 2000 will be reopened.

The incident occurred at the Bellambi West Colliery when a machine broke down underground while installing props. The roof collapsed, covering both men in rock killing Aspinall and injuring another.

The matter was heard in November 2007 and February 2008, with Inspector Morrison accusing Allied Coal of failing to ensure the health and safety of its workers during the incident.

It is alleged that the company failed to provide safe work systems and information, instruction and training necessary to ensure the safety of workers.

In a judgment in April last year, the Industrial Relations Commission dismissed the proceedings against Mr. Baldwin and Mr. Milner on the grounds that Inspector Morrison had not established a breach of the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
