There’s been another tragedy on an Australian worksite, this time claiming the life of a man on a worksite in Carlton.

The construction worker died at the Melbourne building site after falling down a shaft from a temporary platform.

The investigation into the death of the 54 year old worker is underway and is apparently focussing on the structural integrity of the platform on which the worker was sitting at the time.

The man fell 20 metres down a construction shaft at the $50 million apartment development.

The worker was sitting on the platform over an air shaft when it gave way according to a CFMEU spokesperson.
