Elite performance training specialists, Collective Mind, have been cleared of any wrongdoing in relation to the infamous 2018 Adelaide Crows pre-season training camp, after an investigation which took more than a year to complete by workplace safety investigator, Safework SA.
In a statement today, Safework SA said “There is no evidence of any breach of the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 relating to the Camp,” it said and the “investigation is now closed”.
In a statement released by the Adelaide Football Club, it said that neither the Club “nor any other person or organisation” breached any Work Health and Safety laws during or in relation to the Camp.
For Collective Mind owners Amon Woulfe and Derek Leddie today’s announcement came as a welcome, yet overdue, relief.
“We cooperated fully and voluntarily with the investigation,” said Mr Woulfe.
“While we are glad this has finally been resolved, it should not be forgotten that these false and sustained allegations have had significant impacts on our business, our brand and our personal reputations.”
“We fully understand the important role the media plays in sport, however the media has an obligation to make sure its facts are correct. In our case, the reporting was incorrect, repeatedly inflated and deeply hurtful,” he said.
“We are still yet to receive any sort of retraction or public apology, and we will be seeking appropriate legal redress.”
