WorkSafe Act recently issued a Prohibition Notice and 2 Improvement notices after an incident involving an excavator on a civic construction site.
The owner of the excavator as well as the site’s principal contractor were issued the notices.
The excavator was moving a 3 tonne coil of stressing cable when it tipped onto its side.
According to WorkSafe ACT, the surface area in which the plant was operating was not sufficient. Luckily the operator was wearing a seatbelt, so he avoided serious injury.
