Sue Bottrell, Lawyer, Contractor Safety
Sue Bottrell has worked in occupational health and safety and worker’s compensation rehabilitation and for the past 20 years. She is a suitably qualified OHS professional as defined by Worksafe Victoria (2008) and has qualifications in safety to master’s level in both health and safety and law.
Sue is a leading legal and safety expert in the management of contractor safety. In 2010 Sue wrote an article looking at the legal issues surrounding the management of contractor safety, and the legal obligations imposed on employers under the health and safety legislation. The position she proposed in that article pre-empted the landmark decision of the High Court in 2012 in Baiada Poultry v the Queen.
Following that decision, Sue developed an effective and efficient model based on a simple 4 pillar framework to ensure management of contractor safety, while improving productivity and protecting parties from liability when using contracted services.
