A construction worker was recently killed after he was struck by a fallen crane in Belconnen, renewing calls for worksites to have stricter safety procedures in place.

The deceased worker was a 62 year old Sydney man who was killed after a mobile crane rolled over while moving a large generator at a low height at the worksite.
