The State Government extends its deepest sympathies to the family of Mr Jorge Castillo-Riffo, who died following a workplace accident at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital in November 2014.
Treasurer Rob Lucas said he will now be considering the findings handed down by State Coroner Mark Johns, in relation to Mr Castillo-Riffo’s tragic death.
“I will be taking the time to consider the State Coroner’s detailed findings, in particular noting his comments in relation to SafeWork SA,’’ said Treasurer Lucas.
“I note that Mr Johns has refrained from making any recommendations in relation to SafeWork SA and its investigatory practices which the ICAC is in the process of evaluating.
“We await the ICAC’s imminent recommendations.”
