Melbourne Companies fined for Unsafe Scaffolding

Two Melbourne companies have been fined $62,000 in total for unsafe scaffolding at a work site at Bentleigh East, after an investigation revealed scaffolding at the site leaning towards overhead power-lines during wind gusts in October 2016.

The company was found guilty of 3 charges, 2 of failing to provide and maintain a safe workplace and 1 of failing to ensure people other than employees were not exposed to risks posed by scaffolding at the site.

The company was fined $45,000 and ordered to pay $4699 and a separate construction company was fined $17,000 and ordered to pay costs of $4089.
