A horrific workplace accident should serve as a wake-up call for employers to review safety practices.

    This makes me so angry. I was involved in a eerily similar situation in Sep 2012 where I sustained third degree burns after stepping into 40 litres of boiling hot oil, just removed from the deep fryer and sitting in a public walk way.
    Skin grafts, numerous weeks in the burns ward where Dr's didn't know if I would ever walk again, I now have to endure life long complications Dr's appointments & medication due to my injury.
    My employer got away scot free with Work Cover telling me they had bigger more important cases to investigate and compensation for my injuries was next to nothing.
    Funny thing the employee continued the same illegal procedure of disposing hot oil months and months after my accident.
    This makes me sick to the stomach reading this, where is the justice?
