Company and Directors Fined After Worker Falls on Site

A fall at a residential construction site in Darwin and the resulting serious injuries inflicted upon a worker has resulted in 2 companies and their directors being charged by NT WorkSafe.

The incident happened in August 2016 when a 19 year old worker fell almost 3 metres through a void, breaking his left femur.

WorkSafe said there were a number of work from height issues including a lack of fall or edge protection, among other safety issues.

The site was also allegedly unsupervised at the time and the workers on site didn’t speak English fully which resulted in delays getting medical assistance for the injured worker.

This incident once again highlights the importance of work from height safety. Read more at http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/02/charges-laid-young-workers-fall-injuries-darwin/#.Wpg7KOclE1l
