Construction Companies May Be Hit with Penalties Related to Workers Roof Fall

Two construction firms may face penalties of up to $1.5 million each if found guilty of charges relating to a workplace incident which involved a worker falling 3 metres from a roof.

The 2017 incident occurred when a 31 year old worker, alongside his 2 co-workers on a roof of a breezeway were trying to remove asbestos sheets from a school building roof in Darwin’s Northern suburbs.

At the time of the incident the worker was crouching on the edge of a void in the roof, attempting to remove an asbestos sheet when he slipped.

He fell 3 metres through the void onto concrete, fracturing his left shoulder blade and spine. He was not able to work for 14 months.
