Company Gets $45,000 Fine over Workplace Injury

gavel

A Melbourne demolition company was recently fined $45,000 for an incident that left one worker with an amputated leg.

The worker’s leg was crushed when the worker was helping load a piece of concrete into the bucket of a machine when the bucket tipped, crushing the man’s leg which he then had to have amputated.

WorkSafe said all employers should prioritise the safety of their workers, especially on high risk work sites such as demolition sites.

Workers need to be trained adequately, beginning with white card training and site specific training. Young and inexperienced workers should also be supervised.
