Government department reviews safety measures after driveway death
Braxton Nowlan-Wade died at just 15 months old when a Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services worker accidentally reversed a car over him in the driveway of his Ipswich home little more than a year ago.
His family remembered him as a happy young boy snatched away too soon.
"Every morning he would say hello to you with loving, open arms."
The incident prompted investigations from the department, police, the coroner, Workplace Health and Safety Queensland and the Child Death Case Review Panel.
"Similarly, the department's Child Safety Officer Induction Program now has a greater focus on transport safety, including the importance of correct and compliant child restraints and general safety for children across all areas of child protection," a department spokeswoman told Fairfax Media in a statement.
"Additionally, an Injury Prevention Working Group has been formed to promote and consider broader injury prevention strategies while working with children and their families and this includes road safety.
"We will also carefully consider the findings and any recommendations from any of the other reviews to stop tragic accidents like this from happening in the future."
The coroner's investigation was also completed last year but was not released publicly. It was understood the worker was not found to be at fault.
