IN THE STATE CORONER’S COURT

OF NEW SOUTH WALES

REASONS FOR DECISION

  1. This inquest concerns the death of Darren Laing.
  2. The role of a Coroner as set out in s 81 of the Coroner’s Act 2009 (NSW) is to make findings as to:

(a) the identity of the deceased;

(b) the date and place of the deceased’s death;

(c) the physical or medical cause of death; and

(d) the manner or circumstances surrounding the death.

  1. It must be taken into account that inquests are not criminal investigations, nor are they proceedings to determine civil liability.

INTRODUCTION

  1. Mr Laing was born on 12 January 1990 in Liverpool, New South Wales. At the time of his death, he was married with one young daughter.
  1. After completing his secondary education, he undertook an electronics course at a TAFE College. He had a special interest in telecommunications. On 20 October 2017, he was employed by LongReach Telecommunications Limited (which I will refer to as ‘LongReach’) as a technician.

LONGREACH

  1. LongReach is an ASX-listed Australian telecommunications company and a carriage service provider within the meaning of the Telecommunications Act 1997 (Cth). The company was established in 2007 and provides mobile telecommunication services to over 5 million Australians, primarily in the eastern states.
  2. LongReach operates a large transmission network across Australia. It has over 10,000 base stations which it owns. It also has arrangements with other carriers allowing LongReach’s customers to utilise the base stations of those other carriers. A base station provides a wireless connection between mobile phones and the carriage service provider’s mobile telecommunications network. Put simply, it is the antenna to which customers’ mobile telephones connect to the mobile telecommunications network. Given the ubiquity of mobile telephones, it is no surprise that base stations can be found in a variety of locations including on transmission towers and on the top of buildings.
  3. IMPROVED RECEPTION SCHEME
    1. In 2016, the Commonwealth Government announced plans to provide $500 million to

    upgrade Australia’s mobile telecommunications network and reduce the amount of ‘mobile black spots’. The project is called the “Improved Reception Scheme” (the ‘Scheme’). Telecommunications carriers, such as LongReach, are eligible for grants under the Scheme.

    1. The grants are distributed by a body corporate established by the Commonwealth

    Government called the Federal Communications Corporation (which I will refer to as ‘FedComm’). FedComm was constituted under the Telecommunications (Connecting Australia) Act 2017 (Cth) (‘the TCA Act’). Section 5 of the TCA Act lists the functions of FedComm to include:

    (a) investing in technology to improve telecommunications coverage in

    Australia; and

    (b) providing grants to carriage service providers for the installation of

    additional telecommunications base stations in Australia.

    1. In September 2017, LongReach obtained a $100 million grant to build new base

    stations. The grant was made available under a Base Station Facilities Agreement entered into between LongReach and FedComm. Clause 20 of the agreement provides:

    1. Safety

    LongReach must ensure that LongReach, and its employees and contractors:

    (a) comply with all work and safety obligations under work health and

    safety laws; and

    (b) comply with all safety policies of FedComm.

    1. One of the policies issued by FedComm was the Working from Heights Policy (the

    ‘Policy’). The Policy provides that all workers working from heights must wear a fall arrest device (commonly known as a safety harness).

    12. The Scheme clearly had financial benefits for LongReach. Using the funds from its

    grant from FedComm, it employed 25 new technicians, one of them being Mr Laing. Each technician was given a one-week training course with LongReach which included information about the company, its operations and how to carry out work safely.

    INCIDENT ON 3 DECEMBER 2017

    1. On 3 December 2017, Mr Laing and his supervisor, Bruce Coleman, attended the

    Southern Cross Tower in the Sydney CBD. The pair had been assigned to install a base station on the roof of the Southern Cross Tower. The building is 50 meters in height.

    1. Mr Laing and Mr Coleman were due to start work at 9am. However, they arrived

    earlier, at 8.30am. In his oral evidence at this inquest, Mr Coleman said that the reason why he and Mr Laing arrived early was that the pair had a ‘busy day’ and that they had less than a week to finish installing the base station on top of Southern Cross Tower.

    1. When Mr Laing arrived at Southern Cross Tower, he put on his harness. The harnesses

    used by LongReach have a rope (called a lanyard) with a snap hook on the end which connects to an anchor or guardrail on the building. The harness is intended to prevent workers from falling. From the evidence, I am satisfied that Mr Laing connected the lanyard from his harness to the anchor on the building.

    1. At about 8.45am, Mr Laing, while working on the edge of the roof, lost his footing and fell down the side of this building. His harness momentarily stopped him from falling. However, a few seconds later, the lanyard snapped and Mr Laing fell to ground. He sustained fatal injuries as a result of the fall.

    HARNESS SAFETY

    1. Joan Spender, a state inspector at SafeWork NSW attended the scene of the incident

    and has been responsible for the investigation of the incident on behalf of SafeWork. Testing by SafeWork revealed that there was a failure in the lanyard which caused it to snap or, more precisely, tear.

    1. Expert evidence was given by Dr Nicholas Royce, an engineer. His evidence was that

    the failure of the lanyard was due to damaged webbing. That is, prior to the incident, Mr Laing’s lanyard had started to fray. A photograph of a lanyard with damaged webbing is reproduced below:

    19. In the opinion of Dr Royce, with which I agree, when Mr Laing fell, the weight placed

    on the lanyard caused it to break apart at the location of the damaged webbing. Dr Royce’s evidence was the frayed lanyard would not have been able to withstand the load placed by Mr Laing’s fall (which would have exceeded his weight).

    1. At the inquest, a memorandum dated 10 November 2017 and addressed to the

    Management Committee of LongReach was tendered. The notice stated that there were a few lanyards which appeared to have damaged webbing and could therefore fail in the event of a fall. The notice recommended replacing the lanyards. Director of Operations at LongReach, Michaela Reynolds gave evidence at the inquest and was examined as follows by counsel assisting:

    Q: What did management do when they saw the notice?

    A: Naturally we were concerned. I asked my team to obtain quotes to

    replace the faulty lanyards.

    Q: Until the new lanyards came, did you think to remove the faulty

    lanyards from use by workers?

    A: We didn’t think we needed to. The Working From Heights Policy

    requires each worker to inspect the lanyard before using it. If they see any fray or damage to the lanyard, they are required to get another lanyard.

    Q: So you were relying on workers to check the lanyard before using

    them?

    A: Correct. That’s the policy.

    Q: Is the Working From Height Policy the policy issued by FedComm?

    A: Yes.

    Q: Did you ever share the information in the memorandum about the

    potentially defective lanyards with AusComm?

    A: No. We didn’t think it was necessary. It’s an internal issue.

    1. I accept the evidence of Mr Coleman who said that workers rarely had time to inspect

    lanyards. In his words: ‘unless the lanyard has a massive tear in it, we just carry on.’ He also said that: ‘We have seen a policy on working from heights but we don’t consult it. We don’t have time.’ He also said, ‘the policy is not enforced’.

    1. It is probable that Mr Laing did not inspect his lanyard on the morning of the incident

    as required by the Policy. Dr Royce suggests that if Mr Laing had checked his lanyard carefully, he would likely have noticed the damaged webbing. However, it may not have been immediately obvious. Mr Royce’s opinion is based on his close inspection of the lanyard which revealed which fibres were ‘freshly torn’ and those which were old.

    1. Ms Reynold’s evidence was that the topics of lanyard inspections and safety regarding working from height were covered in the safety induction of each new employee.
    2. Inspector Spender, in her evidence, said that in his inspection of the lanyards at

    LongReach’s maintenance depot, there were about 15 defective lanyards that she came across.

    WEATHER CONDITIONS

    1. I accept the evidence presented at the inquest that at the time of the incident, there were

    strong winds which may have caused Mr Laing to lose his footing, causing him to fall. When asked about whether LongReach considers weather conditions and wind as part of its risk assessment in working from heights, Ms Reynold’s response was that it was ‘not necessary because of the fall arrest devices.’

    FINDINGS

    1. I find that Darren Laing died on 3 December 2017 in Sydney as a result of fall from a height of over 50 metres. I also find that the cause of the fall was a failure in the lanyard attached to Mr Laing’s harness.

situation. You can choose either a type of communication strategy or a conflict resolution technique.

Presentation: This paper should be clear and concise. Use headings and subheadings where possible. Bullet points or numbered lists can also be used. You are not required to include an introduction or conclusion. In-text references and end reference list are not included in the overall word count. Citations within text and reference list should conform to APA 6th Ed format. Recommended amount of references to be used is 7 or above. Ensure word count is included.

CASE STUDY You are allocated to care for the below patient on a morning shift after caring for her yesterday on the afternoon shift.

History: Ms Christine Jones is a 34 year old female bought into emergency by ambulance following a Motor Vehicle Accident in which her partner was killed. She arrived in ED unconscious, with full spinal precautions in place. Her mother’s details were found in the contacts list on her mobile phone. Her mother is listed her as next of kin (NOK ), so telephone consent was obtained for all necessary medical intervention to be performed as required prior to the mother arriving at ED. Christine’s mother lived a hour drive away.

On Christine’s admission to ED primary and secondary surveys were performed. A suspected left punctured lung was confirmed and a chest tube inserted; intubation and ventilation are commenced. Minor cuts and grazes were noted on her arms, legs and abdomen area as well as severe swelling of her right ankle and right wrist. A comminuted fracture of her L) femur was diagnosed.

Cervical, thoracic and lumbar x-rays were performed but revealed no indication of spinal fractures and spinal precautions were ceased. Full blood count, urine and sputum samples were sent with a positive pregnancy test result revealed post the x-rays being performed. The bHCG (Beta-Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) was indicative of Christine being approximately 10-11 weeks pregnant.

Due to the positive pregnancy test and the patient being unconscious and ventilated it is decided to manage the femur fracture conservatively until informed consent can be obtained from the patient for surgery.

Current information: It is now 2 days post the accident and Christine is currently in ICU having been weaned off the ventilator overnight and has regained consciousness with a GCS of 15. The chest tube is still in-situ and Christine is on IV antibiotics, Oxygen, CVC line in situ, IDC. Further x-rays of her right wrist and ankle are planned for the afternoon.

Before you enter the room this morning Christine’s mother takes you aside “I heard the nurses talking yesterday and they said Christine is pregnant- is that true? Can I ask you a favour? – I’ve been thinking; please don’t tell Christine about the positive pregnancy test and can you tell the doctor’s the same so Christine will consent to surgery of her fractured femur and further x-rays. She needs to think of herself first then the pregnancy. She won’t make a rational decision if she knows she is pregnant.” The monitor starts alarming within the room and you excuse yourself from the conversation.

The medical team is in Christine’s room when you and Christine’s mother enter the room and are informing Christine of the positive pregnancy test. They go on to give Christine two options for her fractured femur: The first option is surgery for ORIF (open reduction and internal fixation) of the femur and the second option is conservative treatment due to the risks associated with surgery whilst pregnant and having a punctured lung. The risks of conservative treatment are also outlined – longer recovery time, no weight bearing for 6

weeks, the alignment of the healing of the femur may not be exactly perfect therefore leading to further issues in the future (pain etc).

Christine asks the medical team where her partner is and says that she would like to discuss with him and if he knows about the pregnancy test. Christine’s mother step forward and tells Christine that her partner was killed in the car crash at which point Christine breaks down. Her mother goes on to tell her she must choose whatever option is best for her so she can heal completely and to think of herself before anything else. Christine looks at the doctors and says that she won’t do anything to harm or risk the baby and that she isn’t going to have surgery.

Christine’s mother asks to speak to you outside the room.

Introduction to Forensic Psychology – Essay Writing Assignment Help

Introduction to Forensic Psychology – Essay Writing Assignment Help

Step 1: Topic would a possible offender lie during an interview? If so, how can we detect deception scientifically?

Step 2: Familiarise yourself with the requirements

Step 3: Identify the main area of psychological research that relates to the question

The aim of your essay is to describe this research and then argue what role psychology can play in helping to answer this legal question. This area could be memory for eyewitness testimony, or communication for the deception question.

Step 4: Identify two factors within this main area of research

For example, you could select factors such as: gender, age, distractions, weapons focus or time since event, and how these factors may impact on memory, and therefore eyewitness testimony. If you choose the deception question, you could look at factors such as eye contact, paralanguage, body language, distance, gender or age.

Step 5: Construct your argument

In this step you will argue what role psychology can play in helping to answer the legal question you have chosen. You should provide a clear examination of the research on the selected factors using journal articles to back up your arguments.

Step 6: Discuss the legal implications of analysis 

Given these questions are all legal in nature, ensure you consider associated implications from the position of the forensic psychologist. If they are to assist the court what major issues might they want to clarify to the jury?

Step 7: Write a conclusion to complete your draft essay

Once you have completed Steps 3–6, the bulk of your essay is complete. The next step is to write a conclusion.

What conclusions do you draw from your examination of these two factors to cohesively argue the role psychology can play in addressing the question?

Question 1 

Steve Jones is an entrepreneur with a variety of business interests. He learned of a gold deposit in Western Australia. Because he was anxious to exploit the opportunity, he flew to Perth and on 6 July and entered into a contract to buy a drilling machine from Thor Mining Machinery Ltd, to be used to drill a test shaft. The contract specified that the drill would be delivered, and payment of the $ 125 000 price would fall due, on 30 July. He signed the contract as follows:

Steve Jones, on behalf of WA Gold Exploration Ltd.

WA Gold Exploration Ltd was registered as a company by ASIC on 10 July, with Steve as 90% shareholder. He and the other shareholders met on 11 July, to elect a board of five directors. Steve himself was not elected to the board, because although he had originally discovered the opportunity, he had no experience in mining operations, and so did not want to be a director.

On 14 July, the board signed a contract with for a fleet of five ore trucks from Volvo Trucks (Australia) Ltd, costing a total of $ 500 000, to be delivered on 30 September. The board also established a sub-committee to determine the company’s technical needs, and on 25 July the board accepted the committee’s recommendation that the company buy a drill from United Mining Machinery Ltd for $ 100 000. The board also contacted Thor Mining Machinery Ltd and told it that it would not be taking delivery of the drill.

Unfortunately, in mid-September it became clear that the gold deposit was not as large as hoped, and the board ceased trading on the basis that the company had only $ 400 000 in assets and had accumulated $ 2 million in liabilities. The company is therefore unable to pay for the trucks.

Steve, who has personal assets of $ 1 million, has now been sued for breach of contract by both Thor Mining Machinery Ltd and Volvo Trucks (Australia) Ltd. Assume you are his legal advisor. Prepare advice for him citing full legal authority, as to what his legal position is.

Question 2 

Simon, George, Sara and Mary were all employed by different IT companies. However, they felt that they could do better if they went into business themselves. They pooled their available cash and drew up a partnership agreement, which stated that each partner had authority to enter into transactions on behalf of their firm, which they called Computer Solutions. The firm operates in Sydney and provides a service of storing data for customers. The agreement states that partners have authority to enter into contracts of up to $ 10 000, but that any contract for more than that must be approved unanimously by all partners.

George, Sara and Mary approach you for legal advice in relation to two transactions entered into by George, who had acted without referring back to the partners.

One was for a 50TB hard-drive, bought by Simon on behalf of Computer Solutions, from Sunstar Computer Hardware Ltd, costing $ 15 000.

The other was for a second-hand ute, costing $ 9 000, which Simon ordered for the firm from You Beaut Ute Ltd, on the basis that the partnership should branch into the freight business – an idea that the other partners had previously rejected.

LAWS20058: A Crime is an Act or Conduct Which is Prejudicial to the Community – Australian Commercial Law Assignment Help

AUSTRALIAN COMMERCIAL LAW ASSIGNMENT

PART A

In using the resources of the early Modules, your tribe discussed and developed a constitution. In the new constitution assume that there are rules protecting a member of the tribe from violent acts from another member of the tribe. Explain what rules protecting members of the tribe from such acts of violence were developed and why they were developed in the tribe’s constitution. Be sure to refer to Hart’s analysis of legal rules in the answer. There are additional resources on Moodle in the early Modules of the course to assist.

PART B

Research Question

“A crime is an act or conduct which is prejudicial to the community. It renders the guilty person liable to punishment.” Research a legal system of a foreign country and explain what penalties can be imposed by a court once a person is found guilty of a criminal offence. Then compare them to the range of penalties available to Australian courts in criminal cases. Be sure to refer to Hart’s analysis of legal rules and use the requirements for Hart’s 3 part legal system in the answer. There are additional resources on Moodle to assist in the early Modules of the course. Support your analysis with case and statute references where relevant.

PART C 

In this part, your task is to research the Australian case, Gumland Property Holdings Pty ltd. V Duffy Bros Fruit Market ( Campbelltown) Pty Ltd (2008) 234 CLR 237 and report to your supervising partner (your boss!) on the significance of the case to business clients and the Australian law of contract. Initially Chapter 11 of the text can assist.

Please note that additional resources should and can be accessed in alternative textbooks on Business Law, Contracts’ Law or Commercial Law. The resources mentioned at the end of Chapters 1 and 2 of the Turner text may assist as could websites such as www.austlii.edu.au. Your answer should mention other cases in the analysis of the set case.

The report should use the IRAC method as a structure- Issue, Rule, Application, Conclusion and remedies. This structure requires you to set out clearly and in an organised way these matters arising from the court’s decision:

-Identify the common law legal issues in dispute. What were the broad areas of contract law that are relevant here?

-Explain the principles of law, the rules that the court applied and which were relevant to deciding the issue.

-Apply the relevant law to the facts. Explain how the court applied the relevant law.

-Conclusion and remedies- after the above stages how did the court reach a conclusion on the facts of the problem. Be sure to consider the remedy or remedies for the successful party.

PART D 

In this part, your task is to select and research an Australian case relating to when a party to a contract may ask a court to cancel the contract due to fraudulent misrepresentation and report to your supervising partner (your boss!) on the significance of the case to the Australian law of contract. In the analysis you should discuss the issue of fraudulent misrepresentation both at common law and under consumer legislation. Parts of the text chapters on Consent of Parties (Chapter 7) and Consumer Protection (Chapter 17) can assist.

Contract law requires that parties enter agreements freely and voluntarily. Your choice must be an Australian case referred to in either the textbook or the Class Notes. Please note that some cases in the Class Notes are not in the textbook may be found in alternative textbooks on Business Law, Contracts’ Law or Commercial Law. The resources at the end of Chapters 1 and 2 of the Turner text may assist as could websites such as www.austlii.edu.au Your assignment must include a full reference for the case.

In the text at pages lxxxv-lxxxvi, there is a Table of Abbreviations. In the table you will find brief details of Australian courts and legal case reports eg CLR, FCA, FCAFC and HCA; and state and territory reports eg NSWLR, NSWSC, QCA, QSC, VSC and VSCA.

The report should use the IRAC method as a structure- Issue, Rule, Application, Conclusion and remedies. This structure requires you to set out clearly and in an organised way these matters arising from the court’s decision:

-Identify the common law legal issues in dispute. What were the broad areas of contract law that are relevant here?

-Explain the principles of law, the rules that the court applied and which were relevant to deciding the issue.

-Apply the relevant law to the facts. Explain how the court applied the relevant law.

-Conclusion and remedies- after the above stages how did the court reach a conclusion on the facts of the problem. Be sure to consider the remedy or remedies for the successful party.

Support your analysis with case and statute references where relevant.

PART E 

Please note. In this question and answer you should consider only common law contract issues as set out in the Modules and text Chapters 9, 10, 11 and 12. Do not apply consumer law or other statute principles in your answer.

Pedro and Lisa were both retailers selling imported French jewellery in Melbourne, Victoria. Lisa sold her business to Pedro and in the contract agreed that she would not carry on or be engaged in the sale of imported French jewellery anywhere in Australia for a period of two years. One year after selling the business Lisa established a new retail business in Cairns, Queensland, selling imported French jewellery. Can Pedro enforce the contractual promise against Lisa?

Advise Pedro using common law contract legal principles and the IRAC method as to what action Pedro can take and the possible remedies he could obtain. You do not need to discuss the essential elements and the formation of a contract topic here. Assume that a valid enforceable contract exists between the parties. Do not apply consumer law or other statute principles in your answer.

It is essential that you refer to relevant cases to support the analysis.

The IRAC method- Issue, Rule, Application, Conclusion and remedies- requires you to set out clearly and in an organised way these matters:

-Identify the common law legal issues in dispute. What are the broad areas of contract law that are relevant here?

-Explain the principles of law, the rules, that apply and which are relevant to deciding the issue.

-Apply the relevant law to the facts. You may need to consider more than one approach here. There is not always one clear way.

-Conclusion and remedies- after the above stages reach a conclusion on the facts of the problem. Be sure to consider possible remedies for the innocent party.

Support your analysis with case and statute references where relevant.

BIT111: Software Application Java Project – Java Programming Assignment Help

Problem Statement

You are to create an application that accesses a Sql Ite database and allow you to insert new students, subjects and new enrolments. You are also required to be able to insert, retrieve and display information about students, subjects and enrolments.

This project can be completed in teams of two to three students.

A substantial proportion of this project will be undertaken in class during tutorial time with some guidance.  It is thus important that you attend all your classes.

Phase 1 end of week 5  – In this phase you will set up the prototype. This will comprise of setting up the 3 classes specified above with their getters and setters. In this phase you will also set up junit tests to verify your code.

Phase 2 end of week 7 – week 8 – adding a graphic user interface 

In this phase you will add a user interface to your prototype. You will use WindowBuilder to do this though it will need to do a little coding to make it more efficient and useable. Your user interface will have a home page which can call up each of the required functions. That is the home page will be able to call up an insert student page, a retrieve student page, an insert subject page, a retrieve subject page, an insert enrolment page and a display enrolment page. From each of these pages, you should be able to navigate back to the home page

Phase 3 – porting to a database 

In this phase you will add connectivity to a Sqlite database. This will let you perform the actual functions of saving and retrieving from the database.
