A stage collapsed at the Big Valley Jamboree during a severe storm, killing a woman. Nearly two years later, the government laid 33 OHS charges against three companies for their roles in the incident. The charges allege, among other things, that the production company failed to ensure that the stage and equipment were strong enough to withstand the stresses imposed by the sudden storm.
