Vic building company charged after worker’s fatal fall
A Victoria building company faces charges for safety breaches following the death of a worker after a fall at a Melbourne construction site two years ago.
The 26-year-old man fell from scaffolding onto concrete in April 2020.
WorkSafe Victoria has charged the company under section 26(1) of the OHS Act for failing to ensure the workplace was safe and without risks to health.
That safety watchdog also accuses the company of failing to report a workplace incident contrary to section 38(1) of the OHS Act.
