SafetyNet 629

Welcome to the 23 June, 2022 edition of SafetyNet.

It’s being reported a man died yesterday after a quarry truck tipped while reversing at a rail project site in Northern Victoria.

WorkSafe also report they’re investigating the death of a 50-year-old who fell at a Carrum Downs hotel, June 12. The man apparently walked through an aluminium screen, fell 60 centimetres to the concrete below, striking his head. He was taken to hospital but died on Saturday.

We await details and confirmation from WorkSafe but send our sincere condolences to family, friends and colleagues of the two deceased. "Mourn the dead, fight like hell for the living."

We hope you find this week's edition useful and interesting. Feel free to share it and please encourage others in your workplaces to subscribe.
