CRUSHED IN COLLAPSE: CARLISLE HOMES CHARGED

WorkSafe has been charged Carlisle Homes Pty Ltd after a contractor was seriously injured in a collapse at a construction site in Glen Waverley in February 2022.

The company faces two charges under section 23(1) of our OHS Act for failing to ensure that persons other than employees were not exposed to health and safety risks.

Specifically, they are accused of not adequately reducing the risk of a structural failure involving an incomplete timber housing frame during the delivery of roof trusses.

The case will be heard at Melbourne Magistrates' Court on February 8, 2024.
