A man has been killed in central Victoria after falling from a roof.

The man, believed to be in his 60s, fell from a roof and became impaled on a metal picket.

The man was working with another on a verandah roof in Neilborough, near Bendigo when the fall took place.

The cause of the fall is not yet known however WorkSafe is investigating.

This is another example of the horrific consequences of a lack of fall protection. Ensure that even when working from a perceived ‘low’ height, the proper fall prevention and fall protection controls are implemented and utilised.
