Recent reports have emerged that reveal that safety concerns were raised at the Macquarie Park site where 18 year old Christopher Cassaniti was killed prior to the scaffolding collapse that resulted in his death.
A report by 60 Minutes indicated numerous emails had shown repeated warnings were made by the scaffolding company to the construction company, pointing out the safety breaches as far back as January 2018 with 2 of them warning that people may die as a result.
The company had allegedly received the warning after the scaffolding was thought to be tampered with and deemed unsafe. Reporters also have emails and photographs indicating overloading of the scaffolding with building materials and the premature removal of ties which secure scaffolding.
