Construction Site Manager Cleared of Blame over Irish Workers Deaths

The former construction site manager of the Perth site where 2 Irish tradies were tragically crushed by a massive concrete panel in N0vember 2015, has been cleared of charges by a magistrate.

The site manager had been in charge of the site where the 2 workers were employed, together with dozens of other workers.

The man appeared in Perth Magistrates Court, after WorkSafe alleged he had neglected his duty by failing to ensure an exclusion zone was set up in the area where the 2 men were smoking when the concrete panel fell on them.

The magistrate said prosecutors had failed to prove their case beyond reasonable doubt and acquitted the site manager.
