801 Deaths – Cannot be forgotten or ignored

April 2021



Video: Who we are. Why our Victorian OHS campaign



On the 27 March 2020 the Victorian government started its Covid-19 hotel quarantine program. The program was a management disaster. This lead directly to Covid-19 breaking out across Victoria allegedly resulting in 801 deaths.

The Victorian work safety laws require prosecution of any person or body that conducts unsafe practices. This applies to the private and government sectors. The Victorian government must be investigated for prosecution under these laws.

Self-Employed Australia is conducting a campaign to push the Victorian WorkSafe Authority to do its job and investigate to prosecute the Victorian government. This page gives links to our campaign activity as well as information and facts on why, at law, prosecutions should occur.



Update 19 April 2021

New Video: Covid Pandemic was expected. It was not unprecedented. Watch the video (4 min):



Four key documents:

Step One
: Explanation of: (posted 29 September 2020)
Step Two: Our letter to WorkSafe (29 September 2020) and its reply (7 October 2020)
WorkSafe is required at law to update us on its prosecution/investigation within 3 months.

Step Three: We ask for unions to be investigated in relation to private security selection. (27 September 2020)
Evidence of union involvement in private security selection

Step Four: We engage with WorkSafe on evidence on why there should be prosecutions.
Step Five: We ask WorkSafe for details of its investigation processes. For example, our letter (4 January 2021) asks how many witnesses have been contacted, interviewed and statements taken?

Step 6: Breakthrough: WorkSafe confirms they are investigating. Full details here. (11 March 2021)

Key fact A: We explain how the work safety laws apply to the Victorian government over the failed quarantine.

Key Fact B: We explain why the Covid pandemic was not unprecedented and was fully expected and planned for, BUT the Victorian government forgot(?) to do a hotel quarantine plan!

Key Fact C: Hotel quarantine plans were internationally available. The Victorian government had no excuse for not having a plan. For example, the Hong Kong health authorities had detailed hotel quarantine plans from at least 2007.
