Following the fatal Box Hill incident in which a man in his 40s was killed when a container of wet concrete fell from a crane, 60 cranes were ordered to stop work while an audit is conducted.

Another man suffered life-threatening injuries during the incident and third suffered minor injuries.

A preliminary investigation by WorkSafe found that a malfunction of a key component had contributed to the incident.

The crane company that distributed the cranes have issued a cease work order for all cranes of the same make currently in use in Victoria until a safety audit has concluded.

WorkSafe had also brought in an independent expert to monitor the company’s crane audit to ensure it was done correctly.

The CFMEU has called for a safety review of crane operations in the state.
