Charges filed against Victorian plastics manufacturer over workplace injury

WorkSafe has charged a plastics manufacturer with two breaches of the OHS Act after a worker was struck on the head by a falling machine part in November 2021.

The safety watchdog alleges the company failed to ensure a healthy and safe workplace for everyone.

It also alleges that the company failed to put in place measures to ensure machinery was safe and that essential parts were maintained according to the manufacturer's guidelines.

The matter will be heard on 6 March 2023.
