Worker electrocuted while operating crane by power lines - friend in hospital

Recommended Posts

As much as I dislike the endless checking and regulations and paperwork involved in this type of work in Australia, it is very rare that these things occur. 

The licensing of operators and the training necessary is another reason, operator error in this case but who is checking the background issues and the training? 

No insulators fitted to the wires prior to the crane arriving? 

We are seeing some attempts at workplace safety but a long way to go.  RIP the worker and I hope his family make the miserable payout last.

Acting in a responsible way can be a real bind at times, and as for self preservation and simple common sense I wont go there on this one
