As my partner Jorge left for work on the 27th of November 2014 he told me - as he always did - that he loved me. Rather than respond as I always had, I told him to "be careful on the scissor lift"
That was the last time I saw him alive.
Jorge was always studious in his approach to safety. He took his responsibility to his workmates very seriously, and wasn’t afraid to voice his concerns. In spite of this, he went to work one day and never came home.
The prosecution from SafeWork was dropped just days before it was set to go to court.
We deserve answers. We deserve to know what happened to him and why.
Jorge has no voice in this, but his story deserves to be heard. We need a Coronial Inquiry.
Sign the petition below to call on the South Australian Premier to:
Launch a Coronial Inquiry into the death of Jorge Castillo-Riffo
Launch an Inquiry into the continued failure of the prosecutions launched by Safe Work SA
