The Canberra construction company that employed Wayne Vickery, a construction worker killed in a 2011 grader accident, has now pleaded guilty  to safety failings which resulted in the fatal incident.

The 45 year old worker was killed on a Macgregor site belonging to Canberra Contractors Pty Ltd.

Mr Vickery was described as a construction veteran who had been crouching down to check ground levels while building roads in a new residential housing estate when a grader reversed into him.

The company initially planned to fight the charges but changed their plea to guilty earlier this month.
