There have been 3 fatalities in the construction industry in a short period of time, just 4 days which has brought the issue of safety into the spotlight.

In the first accident, 2 workers were killed when a 9 tonne concrete panel being installed fell and crushed them. The 2 men were trapped in a pit, with no where to run.

The panels were being erected without a Safe Work Method Statement and it is believed elementary precautions were absent.

In another senseless tragedy a German woman on a working holiday visa was killed after falling 13 floors on a building site in Perth’s CBD.

The woman was apparently applying silicone to the joints of a precast panel when the accident occurred. The woman was working close to the edge, without a safety harness.  Find out more at: https://sourceable.net/three-dead-construction-workers-in-four-days/
