A crane company and an employee have been ordered to pay $9877 after a worker received an electric shock during an incident that happened in 2013.

The company and worker pleaded guilty to charges and were ordered to pay fines and costs.

The incident is a reminder that it’s not just the employer’s responsibility to keep the workplace safe. Employees and contractors also have a responsibility to take reasonable care to ensure the health and safety – that was the message from WorkSafe WA Commissioner Lex McCulloch.
