OHS Obligations to Persons Other than employees – Clarification Needed

Following my post about a possible incorrect conviction under s 23 of the OHS Act I have been referred to Muscat v Magistrates Court VSC 2018 and a decision by the Victorian Supreme Court that s 23 does in fact apply to contractors. However on reading that case, which turns on complex interpretation of the statute, and considering precedent law in other jurisdictions I will respectfully say that further consideration of this legal point is desperately needed and an appeal in the current matter is even more important.
