Construction Safety: Watchdog Issues Notices After Tipped Truck

Workplace safety watchdog, WorkSafe ACT has handed out several notices after a truck tipped over at a Harrison worksite while unloading scaffolding.

Classic Scaffolding owner Ned Aleksic rvealed that one of the truck’s outriggers used to stablilise the truck, as a crane mounted it, punctured the asphalt causing the load to become unstable and tipping the truck.

A Justice and Community Safety Directorate spokesperson stated that there were fortunately no injuries as a result of the accident, and WorkSafe will continue to investigate the incident.  Presently, two prohibition notices, and one improvement notice were issued in relation  to the plant and the scaffolding load.

Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union ACT branch secretary said the plant in this situation was the truck, crane, and the chains and the accident was a timely reminder of the crucial need for highlighting construction safety as we enter the holiday season.
