ACT company fined following crane death
A crane company has been fined $300,000 following the death of a worker at a Canberra work site six years ago.
The man died when a mobile crane trying to move a ten-tonne generator toppled in 2016.
"WorkSafe ACT is committed to minimising the negative impact of this trauma, working with the Director of Public Prosecutions to ensure swift outcomes for families and the community,"Work Health and Safety Commissioner, Jacqueline Agius said.
"Although it has taken six years to get to this point, I appreciate the work that has gone into this process. The outcome today sends a strong message to duty holders – if you do the wrong thing, not only will you forever negatively impact a wide circle of people, but WorkSafe ACT will catch you, and you will be held to account."
