Meatworker's career slaughtered

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

A meatworker whose career as a slaughterman was ended after a trip-and-fall injury on the kill floor is suing his employer for $160,000 in damages.

Justin Hawkins, who worked at an abattoir at Rockhampton owned and operated by Swift Australia, claims the company did not take reasonable safety precautions, which resulted in him falling and breaking his leg while removing organs from a slaughtered beast.

Hi guys

Sorry I haven't been around so much. I'll try and get this site up and running again but haven't had much time.

Hope you're all happy about The Darkness reuniting! I've been to the show in Shepherd's Bush and will hopefully will have less trouble updating the FlamingWhopper's Youtube Channel at some point.
