Case Study – ACCI Dent Window Cleaning.

(55 Marks)



You should use the following Internet resources to help understand the



Acci Dent Window Cleaning is a 4 year old company currently having workplace

safety issues. The company is under investigation by Safework NSW and icare after two
of their employees suffered major injuries when the extension ladder used by the said
employees accidentally toppled from the 2nd-floor of a building.

One worker sustained a compound fracture to one arm, injuries to the liver, fractured
ribs and a fractured pelvis. The other employee suffered a fractured pelvis, loss of several
teeth, and injuries to his tendon, cheek and mouth. Both are found to have basic English
language skills and have no concept of WHS principles. The company is facing a
$75,000 fine by Safework.
There was an error of judgement of the part of Acci Dent as the shift supervisor
assigned is found inexperienced and was incompetent. Internal investigation reveals
that lack of a systematic way to manage WHS in the workplace is a major contributing
factor to the cause of the accident. For example, they do not have formal consultation
procedures to handle safety issues.

Eddy Mann, the manager is the unofficial workplace safety officer who’s responsible in
all safety issues. For example, if a safety concern is identified by one of the staff, Eddy
will look at it, evaluate it, and make a decision as to how to remedy the problem. No
formal documentation is made on each of the safety issues identified. The only recording
of these issues is on Eddy’s diary where incidents are jotted down when, where, and who
is involved, including some of the relevant details of the incident. The owners are also
totally negligent in managing workplace

safety issues. They have an “It won’t happen to us” attitude regarding workplace
As part of its legal obligations under the WHS Act 2012, Acci Dent is looking at
developing a comprehensive system that will prevent these kinds of WHS issues
happening in the future. The first course of action for the company is to appoint a WHS
Administrator that will handle all WHS policies and procedures including procedures
for effective consultation, implementation, control and review of workplace safety
practices. The management is totally committed to this process after the incident.
