Hazelwood fire

Expert witness

Hazelwood mine fire inquiry

Professor Ian Gordon appeared as an expert witness at the Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiry in September 2015, in Morwell. Ian Gordon said “It has been re-established to address a new term of reference: did the fire contribute to an increase in deaths? As usual in these contexts, much need for careful statistical communication, in the two days of examination and cross-examination. Among everything else, I was obliged to explain the P-value and confidence intervals.” He contributed substantially to the Inquiry as an expert. Some of his analyses are explicitly included in the report, and he is quoted directly in places. Click here to go the Hazelwood inquiry report 2015/2016
