Another Construction Death Prompts Renewed Calls for Safety Inquiry

Yet another fatality in the construction industry has prompted renewed calls for  an inquiry.

The NSW Workplace safety watchdog has issued more than 100 notices for breaches of scaffold safety rules during it’s blitz last year, months before the death of an 18 year old apprentice in a construction accident in Sydney.

Since the death of Christopher Cassaniti at a construction site at Macquarie Park, there have been renewed calls for safety measures to be improved.

SafeWork NSW inspectors observed what they called “widespread non-compliance” to scaffolding rules during their crackdown last year when they visited more than 1000 construction sites.

The state government said it would take action if an investigation found more could be done to ensure workers’ safety.
