A wooden moulds factory in Brisbane’s eastern suburbs has been blamed for moulding wooden furniture, furniture from China and other materials.
The factory, which produces the woodworking and furniture products, was the subject of a report into its operations by the Queensland Productivity Commission (QPPC).
The QPPC’s investigation found the factory had been in operation since 2013, but only recently ceased to operate.
The QPC found the manufacturing company employed over 200 people, and that all the workers worked in a work-related area and were required to complete work for an hourly wage.
The workers were also required to report any suspected problems with their working conditions to their employer, the QPDC said.
The company was fined $4,000 for not providing adequate working conditions and failing to report suspected problems to the QPC.
