Workplace Health and Safety In The Forefront after Box Hill Accident

Workplace health and safety has come to the forefront following an incident in Box Hill, in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.

A worker in his 40s died and another was seriously injured after a container of concrete fell from the crane recently.

The 2 men were submerged and trapped in the wet concrete after the tub of concrete fell on top of them.

A third worker was also injured and all 3 men had to be rescued by a team of 40 firefighters.

The CFMEU expressed their outrage shortly after the incident, saying 7 Victorians were killed on the job in the construction industry in 2018. The union said the Box Hill incident should serve as a wake-up call.

The union also highlighted how traumatizing such an incident is for those who witness it.

The incident is a harrowing reminder of the importance of daily checks and maintenance of cranes.
