A Vic construction firm has been fined $30,000 by the Moorabbin Magistrates Court recently over a workplace incident that left one worker severely injured.

The man fell 8 metres through unsecured  metal sheeting on 22 July 2014.

The company failed to provide or maintain a safe working environment and failed to provide a safe system of work. The company pleaded guilty to 2 counts of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004.

The injured man was working on a formwork deck and scaffold construction that had been erected over a road at the site. The man fell 8 metres to the road below while walking across an area that had been covered by metal sheeting which was unsecured and had moved out of place.

The company received a conviction to pay a fine of $30,000 and $4423 in costs.
