WorkSafe investigates two regional deaths
WorkSafe is investigating incidents leading to the deaths of two men in regional areas at the weekend.
WorkSafe has been notified that a 55-year-old truck driver was killed at Emu Flats (near Kalgoorlie) on Saturday when the water truck he was driving rolled on a dirt road.
Notification has also been received that a 38-year-old labourer died after being thrown from an all-terrain vehicle on a farm at Benger (near Harvey).
Inspectors will investigate the circumstances of both incidents to determine whether they are work-related and with a view to preventing future incidents of a similar nature.
WorkSafe WA Commissioner Darren Kavanagh said any work-related death was a tragedy, and relayed his sincere condolences to the men’s families.
