The confidential settlement was always to be expected, as publicising the specific causes of the incident in the Fair Work Commission had the potential to be detrimental to BHP. The termination was a mistake and the issue should have been avoided by way of a confidential resolution between both parties after the event, where the operator resigned and we all lived happily ever after.
