Company Charged Over Death of Painter

A Vic company has been fined for the accident involving a painter who fell to his death on their site in 2017.

The 69 year old man fell more than 3 metres through a hole at a construction site at Merricks North on the Mornington Peninsula.

A hotel complex under construction was the site of the tragedy with WorkSafe finding that the company had breached several workplace health and safety laws.

The company was charged in the Melbourne Magistrates Court recently.
