Worker dead after incident at Delacombe worksite

Worker dead after incident at Delacombe worksite

“A man believed aged in his 60s, passed away after being transported from the scene for medical treatment.

“Police and WorkSafe are investigating and a report will be prepared for the coroner.”

The worker’s death comes less than twelve months after two men died in a trench collapse, prompting the state government to introduce legislation around industrial manslaughter laws into parliament.

Those laws will come into effect on July 1, which will see PCBUs face up to 20 years in jail or fines of over $16 million if they are found guilty of negligence over a workplace death.

WorkSafe Victoria has confirmed it is investigating the incident.
