A construction company was handed a $170,000 fine for the death of a mechanical fitter in September 2011.

The man was killed when a section of smoke duct formwork he was cutting, collapsed onto him. He was rushed to hospital where he died 2 days later.

The construction company was found to have been negligent in that they did not have a safe system of work in place, as Workplace Health and Safety law dictates.

The company was found to have breached the then Commonwealth Occupational Health and Safety Act 1991, however it has been replaced by the Work Health and Safety Act in 2012.
