Crane Driver Gets Hefty Fine in WA


WorkSafe WA Commissioner Lex McCulloch says the recent fining of a crane driver for neglect of safety should be a reminder for everyone to always think of safety in the workplace.

The man received a fine of $2500 and was ordered to pay costs of $594 after he made contact with over head power lines at a construction site in Scarborough Beach Road, Osborne Park in 2014.

Mr McCulloch said it is crucially important for crane drivers to be aware of the location of power lines and to observe the relevant exclusion.
