Calls for Better Construction Safety after Sydney Scaffolding Death

There’s been renewed calls for better construction safety following a fatality on a Sydney construction site when a 15 metre scaffolding tower gave way, dropping a pile of steel onto an 18 year old apprentice.

The young man Christopher Cassaniti died at the MacQuarie Park construction site just months after a SafeWork NSW crackdown concluded.

During the year-long crackdown, the watchdog issued over 100 notices for breaches of scaffolding safety rules after visiting more than 1000 sites.

This incident has prompted renewed calls for an inquiry into scaffolding safety with the state government saying it would take action if an investigation found more could be done to keep workers safe.
