Ballarat Construction Firm Fined $25,000 for Scaffolding Failures

A construction company based in Ballarat has been fined $25,000 for failing to heed WorkSafe directions to repair unsafe scaffolding at a Mount Clear Worksite. The company was also ordered to pay $2897 in costs.

The company was found guilty for 2 offences relating to failure to provide a safe workplace and failure to comply with a prohibition notice.

In May an inspector noticed incomplete scaffolding on site, missing planks and gaps in the handrails and issued a prohibition notice in May 2016. The scaffolding issues were not addressed and when an inspector returned, he found a person working from the same problematic scaffolding.
