Victoria Workplace Fatalities Rose in 2016

 WorkSafe Victoria has urged workplaces in the state to make safety a priority, given the atrocious year we had last year when it comes to workplace health and safety.
2016 saw 26 workplace fatalities taking place and since 2009 it was the worst year on record.
Seven of the incidents were from the construction industry. Five incidents involved tractors, four were due to falls from height and 3 were from electrocutions.
The youngest person killed was 21 and the oldest was 94.
This year hasn’t gotten off to a very good start with 5 fatalities already, let’s pay more attention to safety to make sure 2017 is a good year. Source: http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/01/2016-considered-worst-year-workplace-fatalities-victoria/#.WHOJuVz-m-c
