5 Cocos (Keeling) Islands News (cont d) Berita Pulu Cocos (Keeling) (seterusnya) FROM THE CEO S DESK 15 OCTOBER 2018 O J : The Shire is aware that there is strong community sentiment regarding the Old Jetty. While we appreciate the social value of the Jetty to the community, we also recognise that the cost to repair it and make it safe, estimated at approximately $15million, is prohibitive, given the many other competing priorities such as coastal protection works, managing paper wasps, maintenance of core infrastructure such as housing, community buildings and roads. If you have strong views or ideas you would like to share, please contact me so we can discuss them. S F H : Balancing our legal responsibilities (under the Food Act) with the community s desire for food at community events has been a challenging issue for me. We have been fortunate to have secured the assistance of a highly qualified and skilled environmental health officer (EHO), Felix Neuweiler, from the Shire of Dandaragan to advise and support us. Felix will be here from 16 to 23 November to run some community information sessions and safe food handling training. He will also inspect commercial kitchens and home kitchens that owners would like to register under the Food Act. Please register with Luluk Sloan at the Shire if you want to know more. T O : Safety of our employees, residents and visitors is of paramount importance and over the coming months we are going to be focussing training in all areas of Occupational Health and Safety. One of the first training sessions is Heavy Vehicle Tyre Fitting as a tragic fact is that approximately 30 people died last year changing tyres on heavy vehicles. Training in this high risk area is therefore a priority. Any other agency with an interest in this training is encouraged to contact Ian Evans at the Shire to get more details. S O S Congratulations to the works crew for their commitment to safety when to demolishing the old Co-op workshop. Great job guys. V G M, I O T B, D I, R D C : We were pleased to meet with Claire Howlett, GM and Laga Van Beek, Director from the Department last week. We reiterated the importance of collaboration and a good working relationship between the Shire and the Department. We discussed the value of early engagement with the Department of Defence in relation to the runway upgrade, the importance of coastal erosion mitigation, managing paper wasps, waste management and more recycling to name just a few of the topics covered. Thank you to Claire and Laga for making time to visit. D I : The Shire is aware that the trails are overgrown and is looking at getting the heavy equipment needed to Direction Island in the near future to clear paths and tidy up. E O K S : As we welcome the Doldrums, we acknowledge the great trade winds season and the effort of our colleagues in Tourism in making it such a success. A key driver has been the increase in interest in kiting. The Shire facilitated an end of season debrief with all stakeholders so we could celebrate what worked well and put in place actions to address areas of improvement to ensure we are proactive and prepared for next year. C T T P C F A S F O S : It was such a fun day but it was also obvious the significant effort that had gone into the planning and execution. Well done to you all. Please don t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries. ANDREA SELVEY, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER 5

9 Quote of the Day Cocos (Keeling) Islands News (cont d) Berita Pulu Cocos (Keeling) (seterusnya) Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world. Annie Lennox Thought for the Day Don t judge someone just because they sin differently than you Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (AS) Joke of the Week 1. What am I supposed to do with this? grumbled a motorist as the policeman handed him a speeding ticket. Keep it, the police officer said, When you collect four of them you get a bicycle. 2. A lost dog strays into a jungle. A lion sees this from a distance and says with caution "this guy looks edible, never seen his kind before". So the lion starts rushing towards the dog with menace. The dog notices and starts to panic but as he's about to run he sees some bones next to him and gets an idea and says loudly "mmm...that was some good lion meat!". The lion abruptly stops and says " woah! This guy seems tougher then he looks, I better leave while I can". Over by the tree top, a monkey witnessed everything. Evidently, the monkey realizes the he can benefit from this situation by telling the lion and getting something in return. So the monkey proceeds to tell the lion what really happened and the lion says angrily "get on my back, we'll get him together". So they start rushing back to the dog. The dog sees them and realized what happened and starts to panic even more. He then gets another idea and shouts "where the hell is that monkey! I told him to bring me another lion an hour ago..." 9

Refusing to Recycle - Recycling is one of the easiest methods people can use to make a difference every day. It is also one of the hardest things to get people to do. It only takes a second to keep a separate bin for recyclables and trash, and it can greatly impact the environment. 2. Using Plastic instead of Reusable Bags - The less trash in the junk yard, the safer the environment. Plastic and paper shopping bags are convenient; however, both types end up wasting away in a junkyard. There are many advantages to using cloth bags including the fact that these bags are far less likely to break open than plastic bags. Cloth bags cost a few pennies and they last for many years without the negative impact plastic bags have on landfills. 3. Household Cleaning Products - The habit of buying cleaning products that have damaging chemicals is much easier to change today than ever before. Choose cleaning products with natural, environmentally safe ingredients. The myth that these products do not work as well is unsubstantiated. Remember, the product choices made today will end up in the water and ground tomorrow. Take a minute to look for eco-friendly cleaning products next time you re at the store. 4. Over Use of Energy Sources - The most common habit that is easy to change is leaving the lights on when no one is in the room. Letting water run while brushing teeth, leaving the television on when no one is watching, and leaving computers on at all times are also big energy wasters. Reverse these actions to make a huge difference in the environment and save money in the process. 5. Insecticides - Using insecticides in the home to kill ants, bees, and rodents causes a great deal of stress on the environment. There are natural, safe products that help eliminate the pests without harming the environment that are just as effective. Changing a few daily habits can change the face of the environment.

13 Public Notices (cont d) Notis notis Umum (seterusnya) Where someone driving a vehicle injures you due to negligent (bad) driving I These are short articles about legal issues that may interest you. They are not legal advice. You should always get individual legal advice for your situation. This and the next article are about where a driver of a vehicle injures you due to their negligent driving (where they have made a mistake in their driving). You may be the driver of another vehicle, a passenger in the vehicle, a pedestrian, a motor cyclist or a bicyclist. You can make a claim for damages if a driver has been negligent If a person is negligent in their driving, and causes you injury and/or a monetary loss (eg wages, because you lose work) as a result, you may be able to make a claim in court for damages in a motor injuries claim, to compensate you for your injuries and monetary loss. This does not cover any property damage you have suffered (eg to your vehicle). We will cover exactly what you can claim for in the next article. You must be able to show that another person has been negligent in their driving (made a mistake, or is at fault) in order to make a claim. If a person is negligent in their driving and fatally injures your relative upon whom you are financially dependent, you may be able to make a claim in court against the negligent driver for the loss of the financial support and the services your relative provided to you. This is a claim under the Fatal Accidents Act (WA)(CKI) A relative is defined in the Fatal Accidents Act and includes spouses, children, siblings, grandchildren, parents and other relatives. You can also claim for your relative s funeral and headstone expenses, up to $10,000, and any medical expenses, if you incurred them. This is usually called a Fatal Accidents Act claim. What is negligence? Negligence is where: someone owes a duty of care to someone else (and all road users owe other road users a duty of care) they breach (break) that duty (eg by driving too fast, driving drunk, or not paying attention, and crashing into someone) and by breaching the duty of care cause injury and/or loss to the person (eg the victim suffers a head injury and a broken arm and cannot work for 6 months). So you might be injured and suffer losses as a result of a driver s negligence. Catastrophic injuries where another person has not been negligent However, if you are catastrophically injured, and there is not another person at fault, you can enter into a special government scheme whereby you can have your future treatment, care and support needs met for the rest of your life, or as long as you need it. You cannot enter the scheme if you have received a payout in damages for your future treatment, care and support needs. We will cover this scheme in the third article. Compulsory motor injury insurance for all drivers Every driver of a motor vehicle must have compulsory motor injuries insurance. It is this insurance that covers you for when you are negligent and cause another road user injury or loss, or where another person is not at fault, but you suffer catastrophic injury. When you register your car, you are paying compulsory motor injury insurance as part of the registration fee. The insurer is the Insurance Commission of WA (ICWA). In the Indian Ocean Territories, the Commonwealth has an agreement with ICWA, so that claims can just be made like they are in mainland WA, and ICWA manages the claims. Making a claim against ICWA directly Where another person is negligent, the person who is injured can make a claim to the ICWA directly, rather than making a claim against the driver or owner of the vehicle. Accident must be reported Note that you MUST report an accident to an officer in charge of a police station as soon as possible if you, or someone else was injured, or there was damage to property, otherwise you commit a criminal offence. This is even if the negligent driver reported the accident. Time limits in which to claim There are limitation periods applying to actions for damages in personal injuries claims, including for motor injury claims. In general, it is a 3 year limitation period for adults. Different limitation periods apply to children, depending on their age. Get legal advice promptly if you or your children are injured. In the next article we will look at what you can claim for in your action for damages, what happens where you might have contributed to the accident, or voluntarily assumed a risk that contributed or caused the accident, and where both parties were negligent and both parties were injured.

Kamu juga boleh klaim untuk ongkos perkebumian dan mesan, hingga $10,000, dan ongkos perubatan, kalau ada. Ini biasanya dipanggil klaiman Fatal Accidents Act. Apa itu ceroboh? Ceroboh apabila: seorang memberikan tugas perawatan kepada orang lain (dan semua pengguna di jalan tugas perawatan) mereka melanggar tugas perawatan (contohnya dengan memandu terlalu laju, memandu mabok, atau tidak mengambil perhatian, melanggar seorang) dan dengan pelanggaran tugas ini yang menyebabkan kecelakaan dan/atau kerilangan sesuatu oleh orang itu (contohnya mangsa itu kecederaan di kepala dan patah tangan dan tidak boleh bekerja untuk 6 bulan).

Bila kamu rejista kereta, kamu membayar insurans kecederaan motor sebahgian bayaran rejistresen. Insurer ialah Insurance Commission of WA (ICWA). Di Indian Ocean Territories, Commonwealth mempunyai persetujuan dengan ICWA, jadi klaim boleh dibuat sepertimana dibuat ditanah besar, dan ICWA mengurusi klaim-klaim. Membuat klaim langsung ke ICWA Dimana seorang ceroboh, seorang itu cedera boleh membuat klaim langsung ke ICWA, daripada membuat klaim terhadap pemandu atau pemilik kereta. Kecelakaan mesti dilapor Tolong perhatikan yang kamu MESTI melaporkan kecelakaan kepada opisa yang bertanggungjawab di stasiun polis secepat mungkin kalau kamu, atau orang lain cedera, atau ada kerusakkan terhadap hartabenda, kalau tidak kamu melakukan pelanggaran jenayah. Ini walaupun pemandu yang ceroboh itu yang melaporkan kecelakaan itu. Batas masa untuk klaim Ada batasan masa untuk bertindak untuk kerusakkan dalam klaim kecederaan keribadi, temasuk klaim kecelakaan motor. Biasanya, ada batas 3 tahun untuk orang dewasa. Batasan berlainan digunakan untuk anak-anak, tegantung dengan umur mereka. Dapatkan nasihat perundangan secepat mungkin kalau kamu atau anak kamu cedera. Dalam majalah seterusnya kami akan melihat tentang apa yang kamu boleh klaim dalam tindakkan untuk kerusakkan, apa yang berlaku dimana mungkin kamu terlibat dalam kecelakaan, atau sendiri menganggap ada risiko yang membantu menyebabkan kecelakaan, dan dimana kedua-dua pihak ceroboh dan kedua-dua pihak cedera.

15 Public Notices (cont d) Notis notis Umum (seterusnya) Unsupervised bath time puts baby at risk Baby bath aids such as plastic recliners, cradles or seats, have become increasingly popular with parents as they provide support for babies and young children in the bath. But it is important to remember that they are not safety devices or a substitute for adult supervision and support. Children have drowned while using a bath aid as they can easily slip off and become submerged under water, tip over when the suction cups come loose or climb out. According to the Royal Life Saving Society Western Australia, parents mistakenly believe they will hear their child drowning. Drowning is swift and silent and is not accompanied by children crying out or splashing. With this in mind a new safety standard, which requires clearly visible and appropriate warning labels on baby bath aids was introduced on 26 October The purpose is to reduce the incidence of babies drowning or being injured while in one of these devices. All baby bath aids sold in Australia must comply with the updated Safety Standard from 27 October following a 12 month transitional period. An adult must supervise the baby or toddler closely at all times when around water. The majority of bathtub drowning deaths occur when there is an interruption to bathing routine; for example, the doorbell rings while a parent is bathing the children. In over 80 per cent of bathtub drowning deaths, children were already bathing when they drowned. If you need to leave the room for any reason take your child with you. Make sure you do not rely on children to supervise each other while in the bath. They may think the baby or toddler is playing, or they might not raise an alarm in time. Children often do not know what to do if something happens, or think they might get into trouble. When selecting a baby bath aid for your child check that the safety warning statement is clearly displayed on the product, that it is easy to read and that it is able to withstand the warm soapy water of bath times for the life of the product. Check that there are no sharp edges or points on the bath aid, that your child fits properly into the device and that any toys attached to the bath are not small enough to fit in a baby or toddler s mouth. As another precaution, always keep at least one hand on the baby when around water to prevent them from slipping face first into or under water. Infants may not have the neck strength to move their head or face away from the water. If your child is being bathed by another family member or carer ensure they are made aware of safe bath procedures. More information contact call , or visit Royal Life Saving Society WA for information about resuscitation training. The Australian government, in collaboration with the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, provides Consumer Protection Services to the IOTs. 15

16 Public Notices (cont d) Notis notis Umum (seterusnya) Masa mandi yang tidak dijaga meletakkan anak dalam risiko Alat bantuan anak-anak untuk mandi seperti tempat duduk recliner, buaian atau tempat duduk plastik, telak menjadi lebih popular dengan ibubapak kerana ia memberikan bantuan untuk bayi dan anak-anak dalam bath. Tetapi pentingnya untuk diingati yang mereka itu bukannya alat keselamatan atau pengganti sebagai penjagaan orang dewasa ataupun bantuan. Anak-anak suda tenggelam dimasa menggunakan bantuan bath sebab mereka boleh merecet dengan muda dan boleh tenggelam, boleh tebalek bila mangkok isapan tempat duduk itu longgar ataupun anak itu boleh naik keluar. Menurut Royal Life Saving Society Western Australia, ibubapak salah percaya yang mereka akan mendengar kalau anak mereka tenggelam. Tenggelam terjadi dengan cepat dan sepi dan tidak diiringi oleh anak menangis atau memercik ayer. Dengan perkara ini dalam ingatan sebuah standard keselamatan baru, yang memerlukan label yang nyata dan menerangkan di alat bantuan bath anak-anak di kenalkan pada 26 October Tujuannya ialah untuk mengurangkan kecelakaan anak-anak tenggelam atau kederah sewaktu berada dalam alat-alat ini. Alat-alat bath anak-anak yang di jual di Australia mesti menurut Safety Standard yang baru dari 27 October menerusi masa petukaran 12 bulan. Seorang dewasa mesti menjaga bayi atau anak itu dengan dekat disetiap masa bila berada di sekitaran laut. Kematian yang bersebabkan tenggelam yang berlaku paling gencar ialah bila ada gangguan dalam masa bathing; cotohnya, lonceng pintu berbunyi bila seorang ibubapak sedang memandikan anaknya. Dalam 80 peratus kematian tenggelam dalam bathtub, anak-anak sedang mandi di bath bila mereka tenggelam. Kalau kamu perlu untuk meninggalkan kamar untuk keperluan apapun - bawak anak itu bersama kamu. Pastikan yang kamu tidak mengharapkan anak-anak saling menjaga bila dalam bath. Mereka mungkin ingat bayi atau anak itu bermain sahaja, atau mereka mungkin tidak memberitahu dalam masa yang tepat. Anak-anak biasanya tidak tau apa perlu di buat kalau sesuatu terjadi, atau ingat mereka mungkin kenak marah. Bila memilih alat bantuan bath untuk anak kamu, pereksa yang semua statement amaran keselamatan di tunjukkan dengan nyata di alat itu, yang senang untuk dibaca dan boleh bertahan dengan ayer sabun hangat sepanjang hidup produk itu. Periksa yang tidak ada pinggiran atau penjuru yang tajam di alat itu, yang anak kamu muat kedalam alat itu dan tidak ada kemainan yang terlalu kecil dalam bath yang boleh muat kedalam mulut bayi atau anak-anak. Sebagai satu lagi penjagaan, selalu menetapkan satu tangan memegang bayi bila berada di sekitaran ayer untuk menghindarkan mereka merecet muka dahulu kedalam ayer atau di bawa ayer. Bayi-bayi mungkin tidak ada kekuatan leher untuk menggerakkan kepala mereka dari ayer. Kalau anak kamu sedang di mandikan oleh memba keluarga lain atau penjaganya, panstikan mereka diberitahu cara-cara bath yang selamat ini.
