Grieving Wife Wants Laws Changed following Husband’s Workplace Death

The grieving widow of fallen tradie Iremar Da Silva is calling for current workplace health and safety laws to be reviewed.

According to his wife Linda Moussa, the frequency of workplace deaths in Australia warrants a change to laws that currently favour big companies instead of workers.

Her husband was a formwork foreman who died after falling 3metres onto steel reinforcing starter bars on a Sydney construction site in 2016. He was one of 187 Australian workers who died on the job that year.

She warned workers to look after themselves if they work on a construction site because you cant trust your employer to look after you. She said in NSW companies held the power and workplace deaths aren’t given much attention.
