Company Receives $25k Fine for Live Power Incident During Demolition

A live power incident in 2015 has resulted in a $25,000 fine for a demolition company who were also ordered to pay costs of $5221.

The incident happened when an unlicenced worker was operating an excavator and made contact with live over-head power lines.

The worker immediately shut down the machine when he saw the blue flash and heard the loud bang, thankfully he was not injured.

The company had not prepared a Safe Work Method Statement for the demolition and failed to ensure the work was performed in accordance with the statement, they also failed to obtain a permit for the work.
