Case into Construction Worker Death Begins

steel piling

Remember the man killed at the South Hobart waste centre, a co-worker has just spoken out about safety concerns at site which the deceased worker was concerned about before his death.

Benjamin Wicks of South Arm was killed when a one tonne steel piling beam struck him at a work site in January 2013.

The victim was an experienced pile-driver who expressed his concerns about safety to his friend shortly before the fatal accident occured.

The man said the holes the beams were being placed into were not deep enough and he was worried about the skills of an excavator driver. Apparently his concerns were well founded.
