020703** Harry Glasbeek - Flat Earth: Corporate Criminality

Every year hundreds of workers are injured or killed in workplace accidents. These injuries and deaths are easily recorded as cause and effect is often immediately evident. However, there are other injuries and illnesses that are insidious and, more often than not, dismissed as lifestyle related rather than workplace induced. No longer disputed is the fact that exposure to asbestos can lead to injury or death but what does remain disputed is who is responsible for allowing workers to remain exposed to it. Even as workers continue to die from mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases no-one is prepared to admit guilt in allowing the material to be used long after cause and effect were established.

Professor Harry Glasbeek has made his life work the study of corporate criminality and the ways corporations kill people. During his student years he worked his summer vacations in Victoria's Latrobe Valley power stations. Although retired, he is still a visiting lecturer at Toronto's York University. He spoke at the May 2002 meeting of the Gippsland Asbestos Related Diseases Support Group (GARDS) in Moe, Victoria.
