There have been 119 fatalities from workplace incidents this year, and one of the worst resulted in the death of 2 workers at a racecourse worksite at Eagle Farm.

Two men were fatally wounded when a concrete slab collapsed on them.

The large slab was being moved by a crane when it fell, crushing the workers who were trapped down in a hole at the time.

Colleagues and emergency personnel intervened, trying to save the men but it was too late, they had already passed away.

The incident is still under investigation by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland.
