Oil and Gas Company Fined

Occupational health and safety trainingAn oil and gas company, Santos has been subjected to fines for breaching occupational health and safety laws. These fines are the result of a  2004 gas leak that injured a worker. At the time of the explosion, 13 employees were said to be working within the vicinity.

The workers fled for their lives upon seeing a gas cloud and they eventually shut down production of oil and gas. Luckily all workers avoided any serious injuries despite the potential dangers.

The company appeared in the Industrial Court where they pleaded guilty to one count of unsuccessfully maintaining a safe work environment. Santos was subsequently fined over $80 thousand dollars in addition to legal costs.Since the explosion, Santos has spent over $ 40 million dollars to fix the plant and improve safety precautions.
