SafeWork SA Investigations

The Hon. F. PANGALLO (15:17): Supplementary: can the minister explain if he has engaged with unions in relation to the use of these cameras, particularly if they are going to be used on a construction site? Has there been any discussion with any unions about the wearing of these body-worn cameras?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:17): I thank the honourable member for his question. Certainly there have been trials over an extended period of time in relation to the types of cameras and how they are used and have been selected, but they could be used for any breach of the work health and safety system. Certainly, I haven't undertaken consultation with unions about their use or otherwise.
