Anouncements: SIA Committee Member apologizes for defamatory publications

In an out of court settlement in April this year, Mr Trevor Love, provided a retraction and apology to Mr Waugh for defamatory publications. At the time of the publications, Mr Love was the Safety Institute of Australia (SIA), committee member representing Queensland. Mr Waugh was the SIA National Secretary.

Mr Waugh commenced civil action when the SIA failed to ensure the organisations’ purported ethical standards were upheld following an internal SIA investigation that found that the conduct of various SIA members towards Mr Waugh has been: (1) disrespectful and, at times, overbearing; (2) paternalistic and dictatorial. The SIA then went on to reward Mr Love with life membership.
