Industrial manslaughter charges for Darwin building contractor after worker’s fatal fall
A Darwin building contractor is facing industrial manslaughter charges following the death of a worker at a Bayview construction site in April 2020.
The man, 60, was fatally injured after he fell about 3.2 metres through a void.
NT WorkSafe says it will allege that the contractor ‘recklessly ignored’ warnings about fall from height risks from several contractors.
The charges carry a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
The case will be mentioned on Tuesday, 28 March 2023
