    Some are asking, why would you build new facilities out of treated pine nowadays what with all the warnings regarding arsenic.
    As some believe that treated pine is an 'easy' defence for arsenic, I wonder whether premises are routinely inspected for evidence of chewing?

    The minimum penalty guidelines, for breaching AHRR 190(1) in relation to arsenic
    offences, commenced on 1 January 2019 which state the starting point is a fine of
    $10,000.
    These penalty guidelines applied in Mr Walter’s case.
    Mr Walters was fined $7000, of which $3500 was suspended for a period of 12
    months.


    Not cheap to breach this one anymore

    As you can see from this other case, also released today, Mr Walters is $3k worse off

    These new penalty guidelines did not apply to Mr O’Brien.
    Mr O’Brien was fined $4000, of which $2000 was suspended for a period of 12
    months.

    Have my doubts they’ll see any of Mr Walters fine regardless of the level levied at!

    Arsenic seems to be a constant

    No sense in abusing it as it can cost you a win

    But I wonder what happened to 'the starting point is a fine of $10,000' see post 23

    $1,500 plus loss of prizemoney seems to be it nowadays
