Electrical Contractor Jailed following Workplace Fatality

An electrical contractor has been convicted and sentenced to 7 years’ jail time over an incident that involved the electrocution of a worker in February 2012.

The workplace incident resulted in the death of the 20 year old worker, when the electrician failed to turn off the power to a sub-board which he was helping to install.

The electrical contractor received a 7 year jail sentence for manslaughter and perjury. He will be eligible for parole after 2 years.

The prosecutor argued that the incident was both “tragic and preventable”, had the contractor installed safety switches, this incident could have been prevented.
