Firm Charged for Preventable Deaths of Irish Construction Workers

A trucking firm has been fined $160,000 over the 2015 deaths of 2 Irish construction workers who were crushed by falling concrete panels.

The deaths have been described as “preventable” and the trucking company responsible for the transport of the panels pleaded guilty and received a $160,000 fine.

The panels were being unloaded from a truck by crane when they slipped and fell onto the area where the men were sitting, crushing them. Each panel weighed more than 3 tonnes.  Find out more at: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-05-17/company-sentenced-over-deaths-of-two-construction-workers-crush/9772342
