In Smith v Boddy Corporate for Professional Suites Community Titles Scheme 14487  QCA 80 the Court of Appeal was asked to consider an appeal from a claim for personal injuries commenced in the District Court. One of the grounds for appeal was that the trial judge, in dismissing the applicant's claim for personal injuries had erred in his interpretation and application of the defendant's statutory obligations under the Workplace Health and Safety Act 1995 (Qld) as the incident occurred at a "workplace".
