Health And Safety Law In Victoria

Author: William Breen Creighton
ISBN: 9781760021351
File Size: 47,34 MB
Format: PDF, ePub, Mobi

This is an entirely re-written and greatly expanded edition of this standard text on occupational health and safety law in Victoria.As with previous editions, it contains a detailed examination of the principal OHS statute in Victoria - the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004. It also describes and analyses relevant aspects of other legislation which impinges on OHS regulation - such as the provisions of the federal Fair Work Act 2009 dealing with protection against victimisation because of OHS-related activity and right of entry to workplaces for OHS purposes.Like its predecessors, the new edition makes extensive reference to OHS law and practice in other jurisdictions, and to relevant international labour standards, notably the International Labour Organisation's Occupational Safety and Health Convention 1981 (No 155) and Promotional Framework for Occupational Safety and Health Convention 2006 (No 187).Critically, the new edition locates the 2004 Victorian Act firmly in the context of the harmonised work health and safety regime which is enshrined in the model Work Health and Safety Act. Despite the fact that the Model Act was clearly based on the Victorian legislation, and is in force in most Australian jurisdictions, successive State Governments in Victoria have refused to sign up to the harmonised system.The authors clearly recognise, however, that it is impossible to understand or to apply the 2004 Act in isolation from the harmonised system. This is reflected in the inclusion of a lengthy chapter describing the evolution and substance of the harmonised system, and in the fact that all provisions of the 2004 Act are cross-referred to the parallel provision in the Model Act. Consequently, the fourth edition of Creighton & Rozen provides a valuable guide to the origins and substantive provisions of the harmonised legislation, as well as a detailed analysis of the Victorian system.The High Court in Deal v Kodakkathanath [2016] HCA 31 has taken an expansive view of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. In light of this case, this new edition of the book contains an expanded discussion of the civil breach of statutory duty action under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 and 2017 which will be of interest to practitioners involved in work-related personal injury litigation.

ERISA and Health Insurance Subrogation In All 50 States is the most complete and thorough treatise covering the complex subject of ERISA and health insurance subrogation ever published. NEW TO THE FIFTH EDITION! • Updated To Include All The Newest Case Law! • Updated To Include Medicaid Subrogation and Preemption of FEHBA ! • New Plan Language Recommendations! • Complete Health Insurance Subrogation Laws In All 50 States • Covers The Application of ERISA In Every Federal Circuit The Fifth Edition of ERISA and Health Insurance Subrogation In All 50 States has been completely revised, edited, and reorganized. This was partly to reflect the new direction recent case decisions have taken regarding health insurance subrogation as well as the crystallization of formerly uncertain and nebulous areas of the law which have now received some clarity. An entirely new chapter entitled, “What Constitutes Other Appropriate Equitable Relief?” has been added and replaces the old Chapter 9, which merely dealt with Knudson and Sereboff. The new edition introduces new state court decisions addressing the issue of causation and whether and when a subrogated Plan seeking reimbursement must prove that the medical benefits it seeks to recover were causally related to the original negligence of the tortfeasor. An entirely new section was added concerning the subrogation and reimbursement rights of Medicare Advantage Plans, a statutorily-authorized Plan which provides the same benefits an individual is entitled to recover under Medicare. This includes recent case law which detrimentally affects the rights of such Plans to subrogate. Also added to the new edition is additional law and explanation regarding Medicaid subrogation, including the differentiation between “cost avoidance” and “pay and chase” when it comes to procedures for paying Medicaid claims. Significant improvements have been made to suggested Plan language which maximizes a Plan’s subrogation and reimbursement rights. The suggested language stems from recent decisions and developments in ERISA and health insurance subrogation from around the country since the last edition. The new edition has been completely reworked both in substance and organization. Recent case law has necessitated consolidation of several portions of the book and elimination or editing of others. A new section entitled “Liability of Plaintiff’s Counsel” has been added, which provides a clearer exposition on the laws applicable and remedies available when plaintiff’s attorneys and Plan beneficiaries settle their third-party cases and fail to reimburse the Plan. Also new to the book are recently-passed anti-subrogation measures such as Louisiana’s Senate Bill 169, § 1881, which states that no health insurer shall seek reimbursement from automobile Med Pay coverage without first obtaining the written consent of the insured. The new edition also goes into much greater detail on the procedures for and law underlying the practice of removal of cases from state court to federal court, and the possibility of remand back to state court. This includes the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011, effective Jan. 6, 2012, which amended federal removal, venue, and citizenship determination statutes in very significant ways. The new edition also delves into, for the first time, the role which the federal Anti-Injunction Act plays when beneficiaries sue in state court to enforce the terms of an ERISA Plan, while the Plan files suit in federal court seeking an injunction against the state court action. New case law and discussion on preemption of FEHBA subrogation and reimbursement claims have been added to Chapter 10 in the wake of new decisions regarding same.

The global construction sector is infamous for high levels of injuries, accidents and fatalities, and poor health and well-being of its workforce. While this record appears in both developed and developing countries, the situation is worse in developing countries, where major spending on infrastructure development is expected. There is an urgent need to improve construction health and safety (H&S) in developing countries. The improvement calls for the development of context-specific solutions underpinned by research into challenges and related solutions. This edited volume advances the current understanding of construction H&S in developing countries by revealing context-specific issues and challenges that have hitherto not been well explored in the literature, and applying emergent H&S management approaches and practices in developing countries. Coverage includes countries from the regions of sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe. This book, which is the first compendium of research into construction H&S issues in developing countries, adds considerable insight into the field and presents innovative solutions to help address poor H&S in construction in developing nations. It is a must read for all construction professionals, researchers and practitioners interested in construction and occupational H&S, safety management, engineering management and development studies.
