Also being charged over the incident is Incitec Pivot who own Satin Touch, the company that Taurima worked for as a cleaning sub-contractor; J&L Schmider who own Schmider Engineering Group; and individuals, Kim Timonen and Brian Corrie.
According to the ABC, the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines will claim that Taurima died “because those charged failed to comply with the Mining and Quarrying Safety and Health Act.”
